On the Subject of Micrometeorites


For Beginners:

Citizen Scientist (musician and overall very cool guy), John Larsen, initiated this new field of science and wrote a great book on the subject called In Search of Stardust: Amazing Micrometeorites and Their Terrestrial Imposters. John has encouraged people to go out and to find their own micrometeorites using just a few simple tools and a technique he outlines on his Project Stardust Facebook page and in his other book On the Trail of Stardust: The Guide to Finding Micrometeorites: Tools, Techniques, and Identification. To learn more about how John began his journey, you can read an excellent article here. Yes, you too may find a micrometeorite on your roof!
