Project “IMPACTS”

Characterization of the meteoroid flux across the Solar system

Impacting Meteoroids in giant Planet Atmospheres CharacTerization Survey
(Observation des impacts météoritiques à la surface des planètes géantes et caractérisation du flux météoritique dans le Système solaire.)

PI: Kévin BAILLIÉ (IMCCE, Observatoire de Paris, CNES)
Co-I: François COLAS (IMCCE, Observatoire de Paris, CNRS)
Marc Delcroix (station de planétologie des Pyrénées)

This project will rely on a dedicated High Dynamic InfraRed Camera for the T1 m telescope at Pic du Midi, the “ePARADISE” camera. It will allow imaging both the planets and their satellites at the same time. A french ANR funding proposal is currently under review.
