Re: "I found a cute, funny, interesting, etc. movie"

Was it paranormal, or just a dream? Sadly, we may never know - though Andrew did tell me later his room suddenly went ice cold!

Re: How Much Longer

Thanks for chiming in Mike. There does appear to be many years ahead for the team, though part of the research now is to find new ways to do the analysis that can also speed up the project. Anyway, this is a great question for Anna, who will be joining us this Thursday. If you'd like to be part of t...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

The latest 15th November Thursday telecon was one of the best I've watched, mostly due to Brad De Georgio's very clear reasons to have strict selection criteria for identifying foil impacts. Glad to hear it John! I got the feeling that Andrew W was more cautious than Brad. It would indeed be a grea...

Re: Continue Research Experiment on Al Foil Experiment under Light Microscope Dusting Optics!

Your desire to get to some answers here Fatima is truly commendable! Here now is a reply from Zack: I really have to applaud Fatima's enthusiasm. She is quite correct that Cu could be a better (or at least complimentary) material for capturing dust. It is worth noting that the Al foil wasn’t chosen...

Re: Weird Views in FOILS

I figured it couldn't be too easy, and just experienced the pain myself, because I don't see a duck, but I do see a dragon. However, you're right, finding the exact matching image of what you see in your mind is truly difficult! This one here barely comes close, butI don't have time to keep working ...

Re: World Alzheimer's Day Catchathon:

Thanks for posting Mike, and for your commitment to the project! If anyone wants to get right to the part where Andrew and Robert appear, it starts at 38:47. But if you look to the left of the video, under "SEGMENTS", you can click on EyesOnALZ and go to the start of that entire segment directly. An...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Ah, good to have you back John! And as usual, it's hard to keep track of all the different questions, so once again, I reply within your original message below :lol: Cheers! Dan I really enjoyed the last telecon on 20 Sept with Anna Butterworth. Her enthusiasm is so infectious. But as a Brit, curre...

Re: Calibration Crater Views Vs Crater Particle Views part 1

Hi Fatima, The calibrations are the team's way of determining whether you are doing this correctly or not. In other words, if you are missing the calibrations, which are known tracks/craters, then we know you're probably also missing the real thing when you see it. This was a very valuable tool in t...

Re: Calibration Views Vs Crater Views Part 2

I think at one point Augusto said that he thought calibrations in the foils search were a waste of time. I'm starting to agree! I might bring this up with Andrew.

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Hi John, Zack was kind enough to follow up on your additional inquiry. Enjoy! Dan Since electrons and photons can be converted into each other (E=mc^2 is often quoted here) there is sometimes a bit of confusion about them being “the same thing,” but that’s a bit like saying that iron and my car are ...
