Lunar surface or Mars moon meteor impact testing

Knopp's hardness testing looks okay to gauge space armour efficacy. It integrates compression, Elastic Mod, and Shear Mod. To test its accuracy is hard as it might pollute orbits.
It is hard to capture micrometeorites, a railgun or bullet sample retrieval mission might eventually work. We can use aerogels to catch micro meteorites. NEOs, or landed meteorites on a Mars Moon can be surveyed to find the closest analogue to what we think bigger meteors are based on smaller samples already captured. Mars is a different pools of meteors, but either method should be enough to make crash testing research happen. I imagine outer dinosaur horn armor shards made better than the surface material, is the armour topology that will prevail. Earth vacuum testing would help; many garnered details would be better in space.

We can often tell that they came from space, however, because many lunar meteorites have fusion crusts from the melting of the exterior that occurs during their passage through Earth's atmosphere. On meteorites found in hot deserts, the fusion crusts sometimes have weathered away.
