Particles from a long dead star found inside a meteorite that fell to earth in the 1960s have been identified as the oldest solid material ever discovered.

The real-life stardust was formed up to seven billion years ago, long before our own sun had been born.

Stars are created when dust and gas floating through space find each other, collapse in on each other and heat up.

After burning for millions of years they die and throw particles that formed in their winds out in to space.

Those bits of stardust or presolar grains eventually form new stars, along with new planets and moons and meteorites.

  Surrey man arrested after RCMP seize hundreds of pieces of stolen mail Surrey RCMP have arrested a 29-year-old man they believe took part in a large-scale mail theft, identity theft, and fraud operation. Michael Benjamin Stott of Surrey is facing eight charges connected to the theft from community mailboxes in North Surrey on Nov. 12. Stott was arrested Jan. 9 after police searched a residence in the 13000-block Balloch Drive in Surrey where the officers recovered hundreds of pieces of mail, stolen credit cards, cheques, 139 government-issued identification cards, multiple forged identifications and counterfeit currency.

Researchers from the The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago analysed presolar grains found in the Murchison meteorite that fell in Victoria, Australia, in 1969.

Exposure age data allowed the researchers to measure their exposure to cosmic rays - high-energy protons and atomic nuclei which move through space at nearly the speed of light.

By measuring how many of the new cosmic-ray produced elements are present in a pre-solar grain, the scientists could calculate how long it was exposed to cosmic rays, telling them how old it is.

Based on how many cosmic rays they had soaked up, most of the grains had to be 4.6 to 4.9 billion years old, and some grains were older than 5.5 billion years.

Lead author of the study, Professor Philipp Heck, said: "This is one of the most exciting studies I've worked on.

Ambrosie sees CFL's first international regular-season game being played in 2021

  Ambrosie sees CFL's first international regular-season game being played in 2021 COLLINGWOOD, Ont. — Commissioner Randy Ambrosie can see the CFL going global in 2021. Ambrosie said Tuesday during the league's winter meetings he anticipates the CFL playing its first international regular-season game next year. The league's 2020 schedule includes a neutral-site game July 25 between the Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan Roughriders, a contest many speculated would be staged in Mexico City. But Ambrosie said that game, with theAmbrosie said Tuesday during the league's winter meetings he anticipates the CFL playing its first international regular-season game next year.

Yayoi Kusama had a breakthrough in 1965 when she produced Infinity Mirror Room—Phalli’ s Field. Using mirrors, she transformed the intense repetition of her earlier paintings and works on paper into a perceptual experience. Over the course of her career, the artist has produced more than twenty

"These are the oldest solid materials ever found, and they tell us about how stars formed in our galaxy."

He added: "They're solid samples of stars, real stardust."

Publishing the results in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team described how analysing the presolar grains also unlocked secrets of the dying stars stars from which they came.

The researchers suggest that seven billion years ago, there was a bumper crop of new stars forming and the Murchison meteorite grains came from these.

"We have more young grains that we expected," said Prof Heck.

"Our hypothesis is that the majority of those grains, which are 4.6 to 4.9 billion years old, formed in an episode of enhanced star formation.

"There was a time before the start of the Solar System when more stars formed than normal."

Canada earns spot in ATP Cup quarterfinals

  Canada earns spot in ATP Cup quarterfinals PERTH, Australia — Canada has advanced to the quarterfinals of the ATP Cup. The Canadians got the help they needed on the final day of the first round, capped by an Argentina win over Croatia in doubles on Wednesday to give Canada the eighth and final berth in the quarterfinals.

Scientists also found that presolar grains often float through space stuck together in large clusters like "granola", something that had not previously been thought possible on that scale.
