Re: Where are the signed up members from?

Welcome back Puddock! We are probably around 100 volunteers give or take, but few are on these forums lately. I heard you might be joining us next week for the Third Thursday Telecon - we hope so! That's the best opportunity to get questions answered and hear the latest stats on the project. Thanks ...

Re: What is this stuff in the movie that looks like a Nerve Cell?

Hey there Titrit El! So sorry for the late reply. Have been working other projects as of late. Anyway, so glad to have a new duster with us! The Stardust aerogel has many flaws, including many cracks and small "inclusions," or little pieces of dust that were introduced when the aerogel was manufactu...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Thanks Dr. Westphal for confirming my suspicion that the aerogel/foil frequency disparity is most likely due to there actually having been many more of the really small ISPs than predicted (~ 0.01 microns or less). What in fact was the predicted size/speed range of particles that the aerogel tiles ...
