  • Don Brownlee, Principal Investigator for the Stardust mission


Support Planetary Radio

The spacecraft called Stardust is on its long voyage back to Earth, laden with genuine comet bits. Principal Investigator Don Brownlee reports on the startling images and data already returned. Bruce Betts hits the lunar links in this week's trivia contest, and we hear from two more of the Student Astronauts at the Jet Propulsion Lab.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
