Scientists giddy about comet dust

Abstract:
Armed with state-of-the-art scopes, diamond saws and ion beams, scientists are prying at the invisibly tiny world of primordial space dust to find the original ingredients for everything in our solar system, including us.

Due to billions of dollars invested in nanotechnology and materials science, researchers now have vastly more powerful electron microscopes, ion probes, X-ray machines and other esoteric instruments capable of divining what is inside these leftovers from the formation of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago.
