Dust Bunnies in space

If we mention dust bunnies, many of you would say, “There are plenty of those under my bed!” Not that your mum would like us to know that!

However, dust bunnies in space are important and help in the formation of asteroids and planets to bigger objects like stars.

But space dust can also be a nuisance causing astronomers problems when searching the Universe.
