Abstract : Physical description: 1 VHS video; 1/2 in.; col.; 10 mins.; standard playback sp. This video illustrates the different contamination process observed on LDEF (Long Duration Exposure Facility). There are three sections of the video that are titled: (1) Fiber, Particulate, and Misc. Contamination; (2) Meteoroid and Debris Impacts; (3) Atomic Oxygen Erosion of Organic Composites. The accompanying report describes the optical measurements that were taken from LDEF surfaces during the deintegration of LDEF from February to April 1990. This project was one part of an overall effort conducted by Boeing Aerospace to determine and track contamination on LDEF
