Touching an Asteroid - mechanics of interaction

Biele, Jens and Ulamec, Stephan and Maurel, Clara and Michel, Patrick and Ballouz, Ronald and Grundmann, Jan Thimo (2016) Touching an Asteroid - mechanics of interaction. ASIME, 21.-22. September 2016, Luxembourg.

Any operations on asteroids that are not remote need to interact mechanically with the surface material, and for resource utilization possibly with the subsurface. For controlled landing of any spacecraft the surface mechanical properties are crucial; for extraction e.g. of a boulder, the strength properties are relevant as is for successful anchoring of any machinery or astronauts. Debris clouds (ejecta or shattered material) may be lofted for long times in an micro‐g environment, thus impeding robotic and human operations. We give an overview about what we believe to know and what we don’t .
