Dust Puzzles
"Dust Puzzles" is a new format movie to demystify the complex world of science. We combined a spectacular fiction movie format full of computer graphics with real science explanations and cutting-edge physical experiments in micro-gravity conditions with Zero-G flight.

All of us are made from stardust. But how were the first small space bodies formed out of the dust in Space?

That was precisely the last question, which Dave did not manage to prepare for the exam. Rushing to the examination, he asks for help from his pocket artificial intelligent HAL-ie. But precisely at that time, HAL-ie involves Dave in passing through her puzzles to receive an answer to his question.

Since the late 1970s, sticking of dust by electrostatic forces were investigated in microgravity experiments.

In 2005, coagulation via streaming instability was predicted by theory. It was generated and studied in an Earth-based laboratory of Holly Larson Capelo in 2017-2019.

In 2020 Capelo's team become a pioneer in the exploration of dust-aggregate aerodynamics and pattern formation in turbulent flow in micro-gravity flight with swiss-based initiative TEMPusVOLA.

Since 2021 ESA invited them on board.
