Data type Browse/Download Description
Dust Galileo Dust Detector Subsystem (GDDS) GDDS can detect particles having masses between 10-16g
and 10-6g traveling at relative speeds of up to
70 km/s. GDDS has detected interplanetary dust from asteroids
and comets, interstellar dust, and streams of dust originating
from Io volcanic activity.
