Asteroid X-ray/Gamma-ray/Neutron Data

These data sets contain nuclear observations which are made using some speciality spectrometers that detect interactions of highly energetic particles. These can be an X-ray spectrometer that measures X-rays that are emitted from the surface. Another one is a neutron spectrometer, which detects different energy states of neutrons that are created when cosmic rays impact the surface. Detailed analysis can separate particles, atoms, and molecules by their mass, momentum, or energy. Data from these observations can be used to determine chemical composition and abundance.
