New NELIOTA project detects flashes from lunar impacts

NELIOTA is the first system that can determine the temperature of these impact flashes. Studies such as NELIOTA are important because Earth and its Moon are constantly bombarded by natural space debris. Most of this material ranges in size from dust particles to small pebbles, although larger objects can appear, unexpectedly, fro ... read more
