Review

"Catching Stardust builds a strong case for why continuing to explore comets and asteroids is so important to understanding our past and in shaping our future." - Jessica Sunshine, Professor of Astronomy, University of Maryland

"An action-packed narrative that really draws in the reader to the thrills and challenged of exploring the true nature of our Solar System." - Lucy McFadden, Emerita at NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre

About the Author

Natalie Starkey has been actively involved in space science research for more than 10 years. Following a Ph.D. in Geochemistry at the University of Edinburgh, Natalie moved to the Open University, where her research focused on laboratory analysis of cometary and asteroid rock samples. This allowed her the opportunity to be involved in sample-return space missions, such as NASA Stardust and JAXA Hayabusa, and she was invited to be a co-investigator on one of the instrument teams for the groundbreaking ESA Rosetta comet mission.

Now living in California, Natalie regularly appears on television and radio internationally. She has written articles for The Guardian, where she undertook a British Science Association Media Fellowship, and she regularly contributes to The Conversation website. In 2014 she received a SEPnet award for Public Engagement in the Media and Communications category.
