Theme issue ‘Dust in the Solar System and beyond’ compiled and edited by Nozair Khawaja, Fabian Klenner, Jamey Szalay, Masanori Kobayashi, Christelle Briois and Ingrid Mann

This theme issue covers a range of topics extending across meteoritic research, modelling dust from comets and asteroids, spaceborne dust instruments, hydrothermal simulations of icy particles from subsurface ocean worlds and laboratory simulations of hypervelocity impacts via a novel icy dust accelerator. Review and perspective articles are also included here, outlining the state of the art in cosmic dust alongside proposals for future research in the field. Cosmic dust is a vital theme in astronomy, astrophysics, planetary science, space exploration, and even astrobiology. Research in this field leads to a deeper understanding of the history of the universe and solar system, as well as the origin of life on Earth and potentially elsewhere.
