Yes that is a good question. Will we be looking at a "zone" (several images in square formation, so that we can scan adjacent "images") or just some random images.

well same here, although when someone eventually finds one, they will probably post images that we can look at and memorise, compare ect.

Ranking

I'm sorry if this has been talked about before, but how will they rank us? Because, if you get ranks by viewing more images it might encourage you to go over them with less care. On the other hand if they rank us by how many particles we find.... well that just wouldn't work.

It hard to understand why someone wouldn't be just a little bit interested in where we are in this massive universe ? I just don't understand it. And when I try to explain it to most of them, Th...

Hi Ferrum, You're right, 1800*40 is 72,000 not 7,200. Thanks. In the FAQ forum, a moderator has now confirmed that the first to identify a track will be considered the "discoverer." Additionally, it is now almost impossible to figure any sort of odds because the Berkely scientists are throwing in a...
