"Dust in the Gel" I search for dust, Only a few microns in a block of gel All I see, Passed into the smoke in faint obscurity Dust in the gel, All they want is dust in the gel Trapped in smoke, Just a speck of powder from the galaxy Starry skies, laugh down at the humans who are asking why Dust in t...

Re: What exactly is expected from us

Hmm... To use Spacewatch as an example... What the Spacewatch astronomers were looking for was laypersons (we must be politically correct! LOL) to be their eyes and ears but not their brains. I don't even qualify as an amateur astronomer. My father built a six-foot long telescope with a nine-inch mi...

i think the first particle should be named after one of the people who died while they were doing there job to the humanity, no matter what mission but we should honor one of them. I like this idea but I wonder who it should be? Every country has its own hero. For example, the United States might i...

I think the prize for finding a particle should be a piece of aerogel. Not the real stuff that was in space, just some sample pieces like this. They could also sell the stuff. I second that vote. I agree that even a tiny piece of aerogel would make a great conversation piece for those folks who man...

Cute, Blakut. 8) Were I to buck the odds and actually find one, I'll probably be selfish and name it after my daughter, Shael. She's the most important thing in my life. Of course, there's always the ever-elusive "World Peace." Who's to say which is harder to capture? World Peace or one of the dust ...

I am concerned about the fact that fewer than 200 people seem to show an interest during the first several days available to sign up to the message board out of the 100,000 who pre-signed to participate in the program. Even fewer have shown enough interest to actually post comments. I have to wonde...

I was involved with the Spacewatch program until my job decided to change my schedule and make it impossible to participate any longer. :( My family has always been very supportive. In fact, my husband liked to sit over my shoulder and stare at the starfields with me. There's nothing quite like the ...
