What’s On Your Rooftop? Flecks of Outer-Space Dust, Most Likely

“After decades of failures and misunderstandings, scientists have solved a cosmic riddle — what happens to the tons of dust particles that hit the Earth every day but seldom if ever get discovered in the places that humans know best, like buildings and parking lots, sidewalks and park benches.

The answer? Nothing. Look harder. The tiny flecks are everywhere.”  Read how Jon Larsen, a Norwegian jazz musician and amateur astronomer led the hunt to discover that space dust and debris is everywhere. From The New York Times  and in today’s print edition, too!

Larsen’s discovery also led to writing a book about it, In Search of Stardust, coming in August.
