I'm curious to know if anyone else is participating in the [email protected] project - analyzing samples from the Stardust probe at home on your PC?

And if so, how has it been going?

I'm glad someone's posted this. Welcome to the site.

Stardust is a fantastic project.

I know we're mostly about the vehicles here, but there was enough interest for the re-entry...so there should be enough interest in what it brought back.

So big bump and a friendly virtual kick up the backside to anyone who might be interested, to get interested :)

My current stats -  1400 slides examined, three possible specks of stardust found - probably one bit of stardust and two micrometeors.

Launch and re-entry was interesting, but seen as NASA PAO don't care and let the interest die as they like to do, I can't say many people even knew there's more going on still.

Thanks for the link, I am now logged in. Haven't found anything yet, however I am really good I picking up on the calibration slides.

Don't expect to find much.  I read that they are expecting maybe 40 - 100 particles total.  I seem to be averaging about 1 find every 500 samples, and only one of those I'm really sure of.   Even so, it's more productive than a video game.
