IDP or ejecta

I got this Stardust@Home Team Official Comment for Movie 9982449V1: "Passed cut 1 ... IDP or ejecta, lower right" I can only guess the meaning, because unless I'm blind, the definitions page does not yet define IDP or ejecta. The DP in IDP is likely "dust particle" though I'm not sure what the "ejec...

Was this one photoshopped?

Was this a case of photoshopping, or does this mean that we all missed the boat?

Are the calibration movies photo-edited?

I have a suspicion that the calibration movies containing examples of a track are edited to appear so. Maybe I'm crazy, but the graininess around the tracks doesn't ever seem to fit with the surrounding aerogel, and the tracks are earily similar. Could it be that a few archetypal examples have been ...

The problem could be a time issue as you said, because each time I deliberated for a minute or two before clicking the image. Th...
