New Opportunities with Stardust

This brief presentation reviews some recent highlights of stardust research and how it can be used to better understand astrophysical processes such as the slow neutron capture process and the formation of proton- and neutron-rich nuclides. Finally, the presentation discusses future opportunities with stardust and how these measurements could help to further our knowledge of galactic chemical evolution.

The talk was presented at the virtual 2020 JINA Horizons Meeting. A link to the meeting website can be found here.
