Paper Abstract

The Particle Analysis Cameras for Shuttle (PACS) Experiment was flown on Mission STS61C (Columbia) in January 1986. This experiment involved a pair of cameras in a stereo viewing configuration and an associated strobe light flash to permit particle observation during the entire orbit. Although only one camera functioned properly, significant trends and particle counts were still obtained from the film data. We report here the preliminary analysis and conclusions from that mission.
