  Scientists find ancient stardust on Earth, and it’s even older than our Sun Everything you see around you — from the birds flying above to the grass below your feet and even the digital display you're reading this on — is made up of particles that were once floating listlessly in outer space. Over billions of years, a lot of that material formed stars, planets, and eventually life itself, but not all of it. An international team of researchers just published a new study that reveals the discovery of some of that “stardust” right here at home.The work, which was conducted at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, used samples collected from the upper atmosphere of Earth.

The formations were “sculpted by 320 million years of ice, wind, and the movement of entire continents,” the Trust said. According to North Yorkshire Police, it took one evening of childish antics to cause “irreplaceable” damage to one of the ancient formations.

Police said “a group of five young people” were seen pushing the rock, positioned near the top of a cliff face, at around 8.45 p.m. on June 1. Not only did the rock smash apart as it plummeted to the ground, but it also caused damage to the cliff face itself.

“The damage this has caused is irreplaceable and it is now in a potentially dangerous condition,” police said in an appeal. “The incident has not only caused considerable damage to both the rock and the crag face, but those responsible also put themselves in danger and have created a potential hazard for other visitors to Brimham Rocks.”

99 Million Year Old 'Gliding' Beetle Found In Amber .
Without amber, it’s unlikely that scientists would have ever discovered this long-extinct creature. Tiny insects are fragile and have no bones, and they rarely fossilized in the same way that larger animals like dinosaurs did. The chance that remains of any animal could leave an impression that would last millions of years is slim, and noticing the fossil of something the size of a period at the end of a sentence would be nearly impossible. However, that’s where amber, fossilized tree resin that sometimes captures plants and animals, comes in, preserving ancient flora and fauna with incredible detail.
