Stardust Returns!

Stardust Returns!

A capsule containing particles of interstellar dust gathered from around a comet is set to land early Sunday morning on a military base near Salt Lake City, and will be visible for residents of the northwestern United States. Scientists believe the particles will give them a glimpse into the birth of the Solar System, and possibly a clue as to how life began on Earth. Stardust mission researchers are asking for volunteers to help them shift through millions of photos of the gel that contains the cosmic dust samples. The project, called Stardust@home, is taking pre-registrations for Spring of 2006.
