At 40 000 tons per year, that calculates out to over a ton of dust per square meter on the earth (assuming that the rate was the same in the past) using 4.5 billion years as the age of the earth.

Neat. If I can't get into space, at least space can come to me

Dear gene,

Correct me if I am wrong, but do I have to look for articles that sustain your arguments, while I object to them? Maybe it works like that in the upsidedown world, not here.
If you make a statement and support it with an reference than I will check the reference. If the reference doesn't cover your claims I will let you know. That's what I did.

And you say:
"By the way, I stand corrected, the L excess is between a lousy 2 to 9%"

That's not exacly what we need, isn't it?

Best wishes.
