Reactions in H2+He+CH4 in Strong Shock Waves: A Review

Conference paper


Humans have successfully carried out unmanned entry into Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn’s moon Titan. Unexplored planets are Saturn,Uranus, Neptune, and Neptune’s moon Triton. Of these, entry flight into Neptune has drawn some interest in recent years [1,2]. Neptune and Triton are interesting because they are the farthest from Earth, and therefore may hold scientific clues regarding the origin of the Solar System and possibly of life.
