  1. A very comprehensive Article on every type of wear particle possible that isn’t encapsulated into a useful SGAN.

    I would suggest that there are much smaller “spherical” ferric wear particles produced during normal operation that go entirely unnoticed. It is these (much smaller) particles that become the most useful SGANs for ISS-ISN.

    Imagine . . . beneficial wear particles. What a concept!
