When will we have interstellar technology?

Well, technically we already have it, which is, I assume why minus 50 yrs is a choice on the poll and why I chose it - as soon as we began manipulating EMS - electricity, radio, television - we began broadcasting to the stars however inefficient and "slow". If we mean how soon will we attempt inters...

What does it feel like....

Don't give up Dash, this too shall pass! What does it feel like to miss a CM? You know how you sometimes miscalculate on the stairs and reach for one that isn't there? Add to that a momentary misery followed by a renewed determination. Missing two in a row is like a one-two punch to the gut. I'll si...

Hi John. I think it's an excellent possible LAT. Though very shallow, there's no reason it can't be. Theoretically, low angle tracks can be at any angle and disposition, however unlikely. This one is certainly intrigueing and gets my vote for a possible IDP. These are just the kind of images and spe...

Astronomers work from sun to sun,

Thanks for the etymological breakdown, John. Of course you're right. What was I thinking? Well actually my synesthesia includes a distinct kinesthetic component: a strong, non-localized, tactile sensation along with the color/object synthesis. Sometimes it's a gift but very often a distraction, depe...

preferred log off numbers

Thanks John. I'm one who likes to work in blocks of 100 but I don't make a fetish of it, especially when my favorite Star Trek episode comes on...or somebody drops by...or I start falling asleep...or want to go out or read, etc.,etc. And what about those of us who are kinesthetic; who see numbers as...

To which I reiterate; you're 'solution' just creates bigger problems. I'll let you in on a little secret: I didn't start dustbusting until 17 Dec., 2006. Dilegent work 2-3 hrs./day now finds me within the first half of the top one hundred (under another name) and still climbing. If an old fart like ...

The awesome fact is Stardust@Home is an experiment; a unique opportunity to simaltaneously examine both inner and outer space. I hope the results will be of value to both astronomers and psychologists. This is the first time in history that we as a species can reach out to the stars to sample and re...

The key phrase is, "...in relation to everyone else." Right now only the top 100 can compare stats with each other.

Publishing a list of the top 500 doesn't change who's in the top 100, and just posting all the rewards... Have you looked at the top 100 list carefully? The scores are automatically updated every few minutes. The same could apply to all 23,000+ dusters if admin wanted so, of course, everyone would ...

I sympathize. But aren't you asking for a lower common denominator? Is this the way we praise and reward those with the dedication and perserverance to achieve the top 100? Instead, how about if admin posts all rewarded certificates? (Perhaps along with a dusters current score?) It would publically ...
