A song of Ice and Dust, or Why we're sending a $40 million flying trash can to Europa

What do the physicists at CU's IMPACT do all day with their shiny dust accelerator?

How on Earth can it be used to study far away icy ocean worlds like Europa? Why are LASP and CU building a $40 million flying trash can and sending it to Europa?

How can a flying trash can find signs of alien life right here in our own solar system?

What does space dust have to do with creating prebiotic chemicals necessary for life?
