Washington, Oct 12 (ANI): A student from University of Colorado at Boulder has designed a space dust counter
that is flying aboard NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto and now holds the record for the most distant working dust detector ever to travel through space.
The eight instruments include two imagers, two spectrometers, two plasma/charged particle instruments, a radio science package, and a dust counter
to survey interplanetary space across the solar system.
Will somebody please tell me how important is it to spend $700 million to send a dust counter
