Measuring Tiny Moon Dust Particles - Jay Goguen of the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado has developed a method for measuring and computationally analyzing how the moon dust particle shapes scatter light. It is a complex method of measuring the exact three-dimensional shape of 25 particles of moon dust collected during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969.
