UCLA space scientists find way to monitor elusive collisions in space

Posted on April 22, 2013

UCLA space scientists have now devised a way to monitor collisions in interplanetary space by using a new method to determine the mass of magnetic clouds that result from the impacts. Their findings, published online this month in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science, are the result of nearly 30 years of observations of collisions and could help scientists better understand where to look first to find new meteroid debris that could become dangerous.
