Re: This one(4836732V1) should very likely be a stardust.

Good. Is very similar to the test frames. :wink:

Yet another one

Hi. Here I have a video with multiple candidates, too. Three particles, all on the left side: http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... d=451142V1

But what I really find interesting is that one of them seems to have a little track. What do you think?

24 in 120 viewers agree that this is a candidate.

D'OH!

It should have been be an answer in the track thread, of course.

Beginners luck ?

Post by Martin Whillock » Sun Aug 13, 2006 7:30 am

Hi all. I have just started. After 2 hours I found 2 possible tracks ! Is this likely, or am I over optimistic ? Perhaps new comers are sent fake films to give them a further test before they are let loose on the real thing ? :-)

Everyone is periodically sent "calibration" movies used to test your awareness and keep you on your toes. If you don't have the 2 events you clicked on listed in your MyEvents section, then they were of this type.

5 tracks in a single movie?

Post by avourekas » Mon Aug 14, 2006 2:28 pm

Hi all,
I would like to draw tour attention to movie 8258196V1

http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =8258196V1

I can see 4 clear tracks focusing at different depths and something else that is likely to be an inclusion.

The most interesting track is the one located top right in which it seems that the actual particle is distinguishable at the end of it!

Avourekas,

I would not flag this for the sake of the linear structures, because they don't show the training movie "holes" on my machine. They also tend to "blur out" in downward focusing.
The dot at 3:00 2/3rds out from center at low focus is also interesting, but again, lacks the training movie "hole".
I may be wrong w/ this reply, but that's my take.

If you don't stick your neck out, you don't get ahead. Keep posting! :)

Thanks tim_yoda for the reply, I see what you mean, these could actually be artifacts included in the aerogel below its surface that just come into focus (and that is way the circumference of the 'hole' is not sharp) while we focus deeper. We'll have to wait for the professional reviewing.

I hope this post will be helpful for other people spotting similar features, but nevertheless, I dont think that anyone should mark such movies as "No Track" or else we could miss borderline positives!

Look at the top right corner.

by the way, it matters if marks one or another track?
