:

“(CNN) — NASA’s Stardust space probe is racing toward Earth, carrying a tiny payload of cometary and interstellar dust — particles that scientists believe are leftovers from the creation of our solar system.If all goes as planned, Stardust will release the 100-lb. capsule carrying the samples at 1 a.m. ET on Sunday. It would enter Earth’s atmosphere about four hours later and parachute to the ground in Utah at 5:12 a.m. ET.”

I certainly hope it goes allright. In space speed, the Desert Command is barely a hiccup away.
