Jon Larsen: IN SEARCH OF THE STARDUST
The Solar system is a dusty place. Every day app. 100 tons of cosmic dust fall down on Earth, mainly as micrometeorites. They are mineral particles in the size of sand grains, or smaller, and fall down upon us at all times, evenly distributed all over the globe. Micrometeorites can be found on rooftops, and we step on them on the road, still little is known about these exotic aliens from Space.
IN SEARCH OF THE STARDUST is the first comprehensive book about micrometeorites, and is an illustrated coffetable book with more than 3000 previously unpublished photos in color – including the first Atlas of Micrometeorites (scanning electron microscope pictures, and photos). In addition you get tips about how and where to look for micrometeorites (methodology), the history of micrometeoritics, chapters about micrometeorite classification and analyzis, and a unique presentation of all sorts of spherules – microtektites, fulgurites, iberulites, oolites, power tool spherules, firework spherules, even urban road dust spherules, etc. If you visit the author's facebookpage https://www.facebook.com/micrometeorites and check out the album section, you will see what it is about. In more than 70 chapters you will get a complete and updated overview on all main publications on micrometeorites and other spherules in a popularized form – the first of its kind in the world.
Meteorite hunting has become a popular interest, and after the release of this book we believe that the hunt for micrometeorites will become the next expansion of the topic. Join the hunt for the extraterrestrial!
