  • Cosmic Dust Grain
    the particle is composed of millions of even tinier crystals Although chemically similar to some meteorites its fluffy crystalline structure is unlike that of any known meteorite Interplanetary dust particles like this are trapped in special collectors flown aboard high altitude aircraft Their interplanetary origin is established by analyzing the gases that they trapped from the Sun while still in space The interplanetary dust is believed to come from comets
