Stig,

This is a fascinating new discovery. In reference to cosmic dust
on the bottom of the ocean and in Antartica. Most people have no
idea that there is a continuous extraterrestrial dust invasion
on this earth. I once saw the astronomical figures for the
amount of cosmic dust that lands each year. Anyone recall the
weight in tons?
