Re: VISITING THE SSL

Thanks, Augusto. Brings back fond memories of our 2009 visit to the SSL. That hallway floor in the first photo will really throw you for a loop if you look down the length of it - quite an effect, and as we were told, completely unintended. I'm sure your son mentioned it to you. Thanks for the grea...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Hi John. Sorry about that! July was cancelled last minute. The August recording release has been delayed because we're waiting on someone else's approval, but will be out soon, and the Sep one just happened today but needs editing, hopefully by next week. Thanks for your patience! Dan

Re: Where are the signed up members from?

Welcome Eric! Glad you found the forum. How about dusting (searching for tracks) - have you been doing that as well? Dan

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Dan, two comments, possibly for discussion next telecon. 1. Not all the tracks with out of range coordinates need deletion. If they are truly visible, the coordinates just need to be adjusted to where they go off the screen as opposed to where they really terminate beyond the visual field, as Rob h...

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Hi John. Sorry, I obviously miscommunicated and probably misused algorithm here. What I meant is that the system still identifies those real, non-PM tracks that are getting the most duster clicks, and thus directs the team to where to look for tracks and the best possible chances for candidate parti...

Cancelled - Third Thursday Telecons

Dear Dusters,

Unfortunately we need to cancel this month's telecon. Dr. Westphal is dealing with some other urgent matters, but promises much to report next month. Thanks for your understanding and continued participation in these calls. We look forward to the next one indeed!

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Hi John. Sadly, we have NO undergrads looking at duster clicks, etc. In fact, I'm not sure how it does it, but the old algorithm seems to be enough to satisfy the team for now, and especially with the new foils search, they've identified 50 new interstellar candidates as detailed here (along with pl...

Re: ALZ@home problem

Hi Everyone. Sorry for the late reply. I wasn't funded by Stardust in May, but am back for now. Alz@home will be continuing of course. Hopefully you can be on the telecon this Thursday where we'll talk about the future of both projects! Thanks. Dan

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

This is one of those PMs I can't figure out what to do with. What do you all think - delete it, raise the point value, leave it as is, or ???? Dan
