In Search of Stardust

$45 USD

A stunning guide for keen star hunters, featuring extraordinary details and over 1500 color images of micrometeorites and Earthly lookalikes.

In Search of Stardust is a photo documentary comprising more than 1,500 previously unpublished images. Jon Larsen shows readers how and where to look for micrometeorites, explains the history of micrometeoritics, and discusses micrometeorite formation, classification, and analysis. Thanks to Jon's work, it is now possible for anyone to distinguish these exotic extraterrestrial particles from theit terrestrial imposters.

In Search of Stardust has separate chapters about how to recognize spherules from welding, asphalt, coal combustion, fireworks, mineral wool, lightning, volcanos, ablation spherules, etc. This is the book you need to identify your own findings of terrestrial spherules in the urban dust.

For more than a century it was believed these incredible space objects could be found only in pristine, unsullied environs like Antarctica and ocean floors. Larsen became the first to break the code and find micrometeorites in populated areas – in fact, they can be found in the nearest rain gutter. In the book Larsen explains how anyone with a bit of inexpensive equipment can find their own micrometeorites by recognizing the anthropogenic spherules.
