Numerical SPIS-Dust Modelling of Plasma – Lunar Lander Interactions

Abstract : This paper presents first results of SPIS-DUST modelling of the interaction between the lunar plasma environment , regolith and a lander. The model takes into account the geometry of the Luna-Glob lander, the electric properties of materials used on the lander surface, as well as Luna-Glob landing place. Initial conditions were chosen based on the current theoretical models of formation of dusty plasma exosphere and levitating charged dust particles.
