Cool Stardust Sample Return Capsule Video

Spaceref.com has a nice little video of the Stardust Sample Return Capsule making its descent to Earth in the Utah desert.

The NASA site lets you watch more Stardust video and other cool aerospace projects in their multimedia gallery, here.

It takes less than a minute for the tiny speck of light that was the return capsule to burn brighter and streak across the starlit night sky leaving a white-hot trail behind it, but it's worth every second....
