Third Thursday Telecom – 18 June 2015


In this monthly series, scientists from the Stardust team discuss some of their latest research findings. You can join these live discussions on the third Thursday of each month at 11am Pacific Time. For more information, including how to participate, go to the most recent post at https://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu:81/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3974&start=30

This month (audio only), Dr. Andrew Westphal discusses the amazing reawakening of the Philae lander which originally touched down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 12 November 2014. He also answers dusters’ current questions (a regular feature of the Third Thursday Telecoms), including the push to get new scan data from the Stardust collector for dusters to search, and some current thoughts on the makeup of the interstellar medium. There’s much more, so have a listen!
