Cosmic Dust News
Recent NASA flights collected Cosmic Dust during the expected settling time of the Perseid meteor shower, potentially providing targeted samples from comet Swift-Tuttle. Maintenance issues prevented the use of large area collectors, but some material may have been collected on smaller collectors. We will assess the collectors and announce the availability of new material as soon as possible.
The Stardust curation team has a new email address:
Please use this address to contact the curation staff with questions about additional sample details or the general collection.
We've added over 300 publications by the science team to sample records, and plan to update the catalog site monthly.
