Current developments and future plans
In this chapter, I will briefly review the experiments currently planned, or in operation, in Solar System Astronomy: rocket-borne, space-borne, and ground-based observations, which are likely to throw new light on the structure and nature of the Sun’s dust cloud. I will also touch on present unresolved issues which warrant attention, and sketch plans for future observations which Dr. Garik Israelian and I plan to make, to extend and refine the Doppler radial velocity measurement technique. We hope to map dust kinematics to add new detail to the latest picture of the Zodiacal Cloud, as revealed by IRAS, COBE and ISO.
