Lecture Description

Extraterrestrial dust falls everywhere, it is on our homes and even on our clothes. These tiny particles come from asteroids and comets and tell us about the origins of our solar system. They are also the fastest dust particles on Earth and their fiery entry into our atmosphere leaves its mark on these objects.
