StarTalk: My favourite scientific breakthrough – NASA Stardust


Here I am talking to the lovely StarTalk team about my favourite scientific breakthrough. I was rather put on the spot to come up with my favourite breakthrough with just a few minutes warning but it was an easy decision for me. Of course the NASA Stardust mission! The mission findings completely re-wrote the history of comet and asteroid formation, and  our understanding of the formation of the Solar System!
