SUMMARY: After years in space, and having successfully collected samples from a comet, NASA's Stardust spacecraft is almost home. If all goes well, the spacecraft will release its sample capsule on January 15, 2006. Four hours after it's released, the sample container will enter the Earth's atmosphere at a velocity of 46,440 kilometers per hour (28,860 miles per hour). The container will land at the US Air Force Utah Test and Training Range, southwest of Salt Lake City.
