How to Prevent Ice and Dust Particles Causing Damage to Hypersonic Spacecraft in the Earth’s Atmosphere


When hypersonic spacecraft are still inside the inner atmosphere, it is no problem. But, when the outer reaches are encountered, there is another problem to consider. Out in the upper and outer margins are dust and ice that are magnified with each strike on the craft's spaceframe. Less gravity has an influence on materials that behave differently in gravity bounds of the earth.
