Characterization of terminal particles from Stardust

Check out our e-poster that was presented at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference last week: Chemical, mineralogical, and isotopic characterization of terminal particles from Stardust tracks.

We investigated seven tracks returned from the Stardust mission, and investigated the small comet particles using a wide variety of techniques.  We found many sulfide grains, as well as some silicate grains that were further analyzed using the TEM and ion microprobe.
