Scientists Find Stardust In Antarctic Snow Which Could Be 20 Million Years Old



Researchers working in Antarctica found dust from an exploded star in snow which could be millions of years old, according to a scientific study published earlier this month. Phys.Org said the discovery could reveal important information about the solar system's history and place in its surrounding environment. The study was published in Physical Review Letters and detailed how the stardust from a supernova was found in the snow. A supernova happens when a star explodes and produces clouds of gas and dust enriched with radioisotopes, which likely fell to Earth sometime in the last twenty years but occurred nearly 20 million years ago.
