Two Aspects of Dust in the News

While the New York Times wonders if "Star's Dust May Hold Clue to New Planet", the Washington Post warns us on the danger of dust storms blowing around our planet. In both cases, dust is the subject of amazing discoveries by scientists. On one hand, a gap in the dust surrounding a star could bring a new understanding on how planets are formed, on the other hand, the dust circulating around earth could be the sign of a grim future.

The film DUST examines the myriad forms and pathways of dust. It pursues dust to the places where it settles and meets the people who contend with it, including scientists-botanists, biologists, meteorologists, and astronomers.
