Abstract Ice is known to be a pervasive constituent of the solar system and, probably, the interstellar medium. In most regions of space icy objects and ice-covered surfaces are exposed to energetic charged particle (electron and ion) bombardment. These charged particles change the surface layers via implantation, bond rearrangement, and erosion. Experiments and observations related to the erosion and modification of icy surfaces in space are briefly reviewed here.
