During the voyage of an Interstellar Probe mission to the edge of our Heliosphere and beyond, there exist many opportunities for new discoveries relevant to circum-solar and interstellar dust. The analysis of this dust furthers our understanding of planetary formation in our solar system, the physics of our heliosphere and heliopause, the environment of the very local interstellar medium (VLISM), and dust in the distant galaxy. This webinar will focus on the dust in our solar system and its link to planetary formation. The panelists will present the current models of circum-solar dust, what specific measurements are needed to improve our understanding, and how such measurements can be made by the unique journey of an Interstellar Probe.
