Scientists have captured what may be the fist specks of interstellar dust-the dust roams in the space of the Universe.  The satellite ‘Stardust’ landed back on earth in 2006, but scientists have only just released their results although they are not conclusive but likely.  To capture the dust, an arm was suspended with a special gel on a pad.  The microscopic particles were viewed under microscope called Aerogel.  Dr Westphal made the announcement.  The particle initially called ‘particle 30’ has been renamed ‘Orion’ by it’s finder in the aerogel.  To collect another speck would $300 million Dollars-so that’s what it’s worth!
