Learn more about the hunt for Interstellar Dust -- the miniscule building blocks of the universe
We all know SETI@home, the wildly successful distributed computing program that brought together millions in a search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Now, just as SETI@home is transitioning to its new BOINC platform, it has spawned a new and no less remarkable scientific venture: Stardust@home, a project that will draw together users from around the world to search for tiny grains of interstellar dust. The particles are the first samples of distant stars ever brought to Earth from space, and you can help find them!
