Steve Mende interview and Space Dust

We interviewed Stephen Mende today. He is one of the leading figures in Aurora sciences. We had specific questions to ask him, and got some great answers for our purposes. Hopefully we can talk to him again as he's very interesting.

Also, thanks to the 'space dust' team we hung out in thier clean space, filming them remove space dust that has been space. We also interviewed Chris Sneade, who gave us the low down on the project.

The image below is Aerogel,very wierd stuff; looks like a special effect in your hand, it's so light and translucent. It's made from silicon and is the lowest density material on earth.
They use this to catch the space dust.

and here's Joe filming....
