  • SPACE PLACE: Tiny grains of dust from way-way-outer space

    Everything around us came from an ancient swirling disk of dusk. Our sun, our planet, and the planets of our solar system all formed from the remnants of this disk. Our mountains, our animals, and even us humans came from the sun that formed from this disk. Nobody on Earth has ever handled anything that came from anywhere else.
