Title

Laboratory Apparatus for Evaluating Volatiles Production from Meteorites and Simulants: Design and Testing

Abstract

A laboratory-scale system for performing stepwise heating experiments in high vacuum on ~1-kg samples of carbonaceous asteroid simulants is nearing completion. In conjunct-tion with a numerical chemo-thermo-dynamic model, it will be used to evaluate the recovery rates of volatiles of interest to the exploration of space: H2O, CO2, and SO2
