AbstractThe recent recovery of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Solar-Array-1 offers a unique opportunity to improve our knowledge of the low Earth orbit (LEO) particle environment. The data from HST surfaces is particularly interesting for the meteoroid and debris community, as the Telescope was in orbit at an altitude of approximately 614 km and there has been no data from such a high orbit before.
