Hey there Titrit El!

So sorry for the late reply. Have been working other projects as of late. Anyway, so glad to have a new duster with us!

The Stardust aerogel has many flaws, including many cracks and small "inclusions," or little pieces of dust that were introduced when the aerogel was manufactured. The surface is also not flat, and sometimes the sloping angle captured by the microscope gives the appearance of "stuff" as well. There's so much of this stuff in fact, that early on we had ongoing discussions on what we were looking at, or more appropriately, imagining we were looking at! You can read one of those threads here: http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... f=9&t=1111

To be enjoyed for sure, but never really known in most cases :lol:

Cheers!

Dan
