Previous work has shown that impacts by high-velocity micrometeorites decrease the initial strength of the quartz glass in spacecraft portholes by more than a factor of 2. The present work continues the search for criteria that would make it possible to evaluate indirectly but quite reliably the residual strength of the quartz glass according to the morphology of the defects formed. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
