MOXY mission at the European Space Agency ESA -  2022

The first ever collaboration between cultural heritage and the aerospace science at ESATo explore AO effects on typical cultural heritage materials, 39 mockups were made: plaster, limestone, acrylic paint, canvas, pastel, paper were prepared and experimented on at ESA using the space environment simulator ESTEC TEC-QEE LEOX. The simulator consists of a vessel composed of three compartments separated by an electro-pneumatic valve and an orifice in the main chamber where the samples are exposed to 99% AO under low-pressure conditions, using IR CO2 laser detonation. Preliminary results were investigated in the new paper submitted for the ICOM-CC Valencia 2023 meeting, and is currently undergoing peer-review.
