Genesis mission to return with particles of the solar wind
NASA's Genesis mission, slated to launch July 30, will bring back a sample of the solar wind - tiny particles that could answer big questions about how the solar system evolved.
The particles "will be the best and most complete picture" that scientists will have of the original solar nebula, from which the sun, Earth and other planets formed, Meenakshi Wadhwa, a cosmochemist from Chicago's Field Museum, said at a July 11 press conference to discuss the mission.
