Re: How Much Longer

Hi, Superluminal. I'm not in a position to provide a definitive answer, but if you've been keeping up with the recordings of our monthly teleconferences that Dan has been posting, you probably have the sense that we can count on a few more years anyway. I think we've still quite a ways to go on the ...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Thanks, John. I'd read a nice review of the film (from the Smithsonian, I think), but they had not mentioned the bracelet. Armstrong's son was particularly pleased with the film's excellent portrayal of his mother. You are right, of course, about LASER having devolved from acronym to a generic term....

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Interesting interview, John, thanks. I was curious about the use of the term "Nasa" in the article, instead of NASA. Is it one of those fun differences between British and American English that acronyms are not fully capitalized? I read "The Economist" regularly and hadn't noticed that.

Re: Multi-Craters Movie? Check it out!

This one certainly commands attention, Fatima. My focus, however, would be on the two more prominent features to the right. I can see your interest in numbers 1, 5, & 6, but to me there are other similar features at least as compelling elsewhere. The larger two on the right (and a couple others) hav...

Re: Weird Views in FOILS

Hey, I see the duck and the dragon! - but my first thought on the dragon was that it was another cow. Wow, don't get me started. I agree, Dan, Augusto is clearly a Master.

Re: World Alzheimer's Day Catchathon:

That's a neat idea, Dan. I'll recuse myself from voting since I'm already heavily involved in that project --- but oops, I already said it's a neat idea … , oh well.

Re: Calibration Views Vs Crater Views Part 2

I know Augusto thought they were too frequent, but I don't think I'd want them eliminated entirely. My eyes are not what they used to be, and a couple of the smaller calibrations don't jump out at me like they used to. I'd be fine reducing the frequency, but would still like to have them pop up ofte...

Re: Duster with calibration views be like

Yes, Fatima, John's correct. That looks very much like a fiducial mark to me as well.

Re: Duster with calibration views be like

Yes, John, the first time I ever spotted a fiducial mark I was (temporarily) quite excited as well, although not with the kind of ramifications you describe! Thanks for sharing.

World Alzheimer's Day Catchathon:

You likely know our Stardust@Home project helped inspire a multiplicity of other citizen science projects. Notably, that includes the Stall Catchers website and game to help advance Alzheimer's research at Cornell University. You might have seen Stall Catchers featured on a PBS special* regarding ci...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Great exchange, Guys, thanks! At the moment there are six people logged in to this forum (me and five "guests"). How long has it been since we've had that much action?
Yay 42, Augusto!

Hi, John. Good to hear from you. I've not seen anything more current, but perhaps Andrew will have an update from Moscow. Mike

Fatima, I think that second image might be one of those Martian fish Augusto was hoping for.

Re: SALT WATER ON MARS

Now that you mention it, Augusto, in English an apiary is a place where bees are kept, an apiarist is someone who keeps bees, so why do we call them bees anyway? Well, whether or not there are any fishy critters on Mars, I'm pretty sure we'll find no api or bees. Best,
