Cal Night

Didn't "dust" for a while. Now, I'm constanly being bombed with about 5 calibration movies on 1 real movie.

Anyone else having this problem? Or is this behavior intended?

Greetings
lpspieler

Update: cal movie rate has dropped again to normal levels. The strange event was probably only random.

Re: Regarding the "Update 24Aug06 - Analyzing Cometary

Have there been any results? - this is the announcement that the team was going to take a break and study them. I am interested in the results of these experiments as well. But i'm afraid we will have to wait for a much longer time. Most of the scientific results are published months after the scie...

I faintly remember a thread where someone of the dustmods explained that it had something to do with the way the automated microscope works. But i can't find it at the moment.

Okay, seeing that, I retract my theory that it has nothing to do with the particular movie. Maybe we should be marking these bad focus. If most people are skipping them by logging out and in or refreshing, the project may erroneously think they are being looked at. I disagree with doing it in gener...

Hi Katkolling! -Next time it happens, you might get the movie number. i wrote up some of the movie IDs with reduced focus bars which i've come across during the last hour or so. The most extreme example is 8965854V1 but pretty often i encounter more acceptable examples like 7538887V1 9721136V1 2181...

What exactly is the matter in the posted picture? The reduced number of focus bars?

This happens to me all the time. Just thought that happened to everyone once in a while so i didn't mention it before.

A starduster's guide to quitting S@H: - move to a lonely island and take nothing with you - while trying to look very closely at a focus movie, bump your head against your screen one time too often and obtain(?) total amnesia - be "abducted" by aliens and bathe in tons of interstellar stardust for t...

I'm cross posting this one as it's definately my favourite and looks like something low angle http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/myevents_viewer.php?id=281240V1 as someone pointed out it's probably too big to be dust but it stilll looks cool I've seen one or two similar movies posted during the...

SSAS results

In the update from Sep 6 it was said that a meeting of the Stardust Sample Allocation Subcommittee (SSAS) was scheduled for Sep 18-19. Has that meeting taken place? If so, what were the results and recommendations for the Curation and Analysis Planning Team for Extraterrestrial Materials?

In theory, that's a good idea, but here in germany it's already midnight, and i wanted to stop a little earlier at least once a week :wink:

"Cannot load image..." almost all the time...

What's going on with the system tonight? I keep getting the "Cannot load image..." message with four out of five five movies. And most of the time, there are two or more messages in a row for the same movie. Such a lot of disturbances never happened to me before.

Well, it seems Mr Mendez was not so honest in his Sep 06 update about being cautious with a $200 million collector. Those sloppy folks seem to forget their instruments on the airogel surface :wink: . Look at this:

There might be a clink in the armour here. There might be a basically flawed logic of how voting and this project is suppose to work. It's unremarkable, Some kind of debris has hit the glass. Probably off the spacecraft or maybe just maybe it was travailing at a high rate of speed in the same sort ...

Movies I didn't dare click...

....but that could possibly contain low angle tracks. 194079V1 slightly diagonally from top to bottom 6741172V1 slightly diagonally from left to right 1985087V1 the lengthy vertical structure in the middle between center and the right FOV rim what do you think? Are these just surface features?
