    Is anyone here participating in NASA's Stardust@Home project? If you are not aware, the project is an opportunity for anyone to use virtual microscopy on their home computer to help space scientists locate the tracks of solar system and interstellar debris in the aerogel collector carried by NASA's Stardust mission through the tail of comet Wild 2.

    This is hands on interstellar discovery at home; a rare chance to advance science and report on it.

    I have links on my blog to it and about it below.

    To me this is really fun and exciting! Good luck!

    Yeah it sounded interesting when i signed up months ago. I don't know if I can get worked up enough to bother now though.
    Will be some intresting science in that collector though, and who knows there might just be a clue to life origins in there. Wouldn't that be something else!?!

    That would be pretty cool, and it sure would shut up those people that complain about NASA's budget being a waste of taxpayer money.
