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 ...

Ah, now I get that last part Augusto - what a wonderful, fun story - I love it! :P BTW, as my passed down middle name indicates, I come from a long line of Grants , so perhaps that's why you tolerate me??? :lol: Back to John now, below is the verbatim answer I received from Zack on your question reg...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Hey, thanks for this month's telecon (August '18). Glad you enjoyed it John, and good to see you're still with us! If only such honest and informative responses from the team had existed earlier and throughout the project. And had been made accessible so quickly on the site. These are lessons to be...
