For some reason I don't think they are holding off starting up the project just to make a certain person win. Maybe if there was a prize of millions of dollars they might release it a a certain time to win it, but I really would hope they wouldn't care about our little contest.

They might just be looking for the dust.

I would guess that UA means USA, but it also could mean UAE (United Arab Emirates). Or it could mean the University of Arizona, or a number of other colleges with the initials UA.

It would be cool to see a world map of where everyone in located.

I think dark matter is something else... But, I wonder what a small piece of frozen H2O or what a solid particle in space, but a gas at Earth pressure and temperature would show up as? Are they interested in finding those elements? Or are they trying to figure out what the composition of 'dust' part...

I would suggest a general discussion board as well. I like to find out who else is out there and why they are interested in the project.

Is there any logic to the order of tiles being scanned? Or is it that one corner was picked as a starting point, and it will branch off from there until all of them are completed?

Can you explain why you need a buffer of more than 1 or 2 tiles? Would it really matter if the viewers finished searching all of the movies from the scanned tiles and had to wait a few days before the next one was put into the virtual microscope? *This has nothing to do with the fact that I predicte...

Re: TO FIX

Since the board administrator sets the number of entry's a poll can have and since the creator of the poll can modify it. Then I suggest that Sundevil change the last entry of the poll from 60-64 to 60+. I am not allowed to edit any poll after I post it. I have had this problem on other message boa...

Sorry, I attempted to have them, but it created the poll without warning me that the last three choices weren't going to show up.

I had always heard that it was seven 'God' days, not 7 human(Earth) days. And I was thinking about anti-matter when I suggested that it was really hard to destroy matter. Thanks for clarifing that and the nuclear chemistry thing. As to the original topic, I hope that we will be able to find left-han...

Maybe I should have said fusion was going on in the Sun. I figure it is a kind of chemical reaction. http://zebu.uoregon.edu/~soper/Sun/fusionsteps.html http://zebu.uoregon.edu/~soper/Sun/fusion.html The same protons, neutrons & electrons that existed in the big bang should be still here today.

I think it would be interesting if someone named it "Made By God". Not so much because of my religious background (or lack thereof), but because of one movie scene that had a big impact on me. In the movie “Red Planet” one of the crewmembers that was once a scientist but then turned to philosophy pu...

I still like the theory (fact?) that we are all just chemical reactions. The big bang was a chemical reaction, the sun is a chemical reaction, thinking about what to type is a chemical reaction. We might not ever understand how everything came to be. Where did all the matter and energy come from in ...

The only thing I could come up with on how there could be two tracks, is if the aerogel broke apart a larger particle into 2 or more smaller particles. Will there be a list of names of the users who have checked this movies already? I think that would be a good way of doing it. You can see that you ...

I am a computer/software engineer. I want to see how the software works and if they can successfully serve out and step through all of the movies.
