Stardust Revisited!

Post by DanZ » Mon Jan 23, 2012 8:20 pm

Hi Everyone,

Take a look at the note and photos in our most recent blog post here http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/blog/?p=415

It's all about making sure our most promising interstellar dust candidates (the ones YOU found) did indeed originate between the stars and not the Stardust spacecraft - which would be rather embarrassing! Plus, it should give you a sense of why some of this work can often seem so painstakingly slow - we need to try and eliminate every other possible alternative explanation (and there can be a lot of possible alternatives when you're looking at dust!).

Enjoy.

Dan
