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

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!).
