Sealing a small asteroid within an enclosure enables innovative approaches to the Asteroid Redirect Mission concept that pave the way for future in situ asteroid resource utilization. A sealed enclosure would make it possible to use an introduced atmosphere of xenon gas to detumble and despin the asteroid, and then to push the asteroid by using a s...

This article presents the design, construction and characterization of a novel type of light probe for measuring the angular radiance distribution of light fields. The differential acceptance angle (DAA) probe can resolve the directionality of a light field in environments with steep light gradients, such as microbial mats, without the need to remo...
