NASA's Stardust About to Meet Earth

In amongst all the foolish stuff we debate, this is about to
happen
:

NASA's Stardust mission return capsule will land Sunday, Jan. 15, at
approximately 2:12 a.m. Pacific time (3:12 a.m. Mountain time) on the Utah
Test
and Training Range. Stardust is completing a 2.88 billion mile
round-trip
odyssey to capture and return cometary and interstellar dust
particles to Earth.

What is cooler than that? I know I'm a nerd and all but, frankly, shit
like this makes me pretty proud of this nation and what it can
accomplish

Here's to the dirt!
