Re: Phase 4 problems

Exactly, just take it easy. They will sort things out, chances are that they are working on it as we speak. I understand that people want to stop dusting in the meantime until this get fixed, I dont blame you guys since it shows that we have zero skills lol. Ill keep on dusting because the chances o...

Re: Phase IV Transition

I was also having an issue like this where I would receive a blank email from Stardust with no content whatsoever. I have replied to the email to report the issue and Will said that he was going to look into it. Apparently certain email service providers (like hotmail) removes the information from t...

Re: "I think I've found a track, what do you think?"

You want to see some weird stuff? Take a look at this. At first I thought that this was a calibration movie where for some reason two track have been inserted (yes two!), but after clicking the one in the middle, I did not get any points or wrong answer for it. I looked at My Event and sure enough i...

Re: Phase IV Transition

Hey guys, I find that the new scoring system is a really nice improvement, great job on this one. Some movies are actually really tough to find and it crippled my score a bit but that's alright, I love the challenge (phase 3 was getting a little boring lol). However, there seem to be a few issues he...

Re: "I think I've found a track, what do you think?"

Well it seems that we are getting some new movies in the mix already, I was really surprised to find this one just now and even more surprised when I found out that I was the first one to view it. :) http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ss_virtual_microscope.php?frame=-1&ondeck_movie=9920321V1 I w...

I sent you the screenshot, but the message has been sitting in my outbox for a while now, it wont go in my Sent items. Is this normal?

Re: early phase 3 movies missing

Hi Dan, I cannot speak on behalf of the OP but I personally do not see any changes. I have quite a few early phase 3 movies in My Events database whose number of views have not changed for a very very long time. I'm willing to show you what I'm seeing in my event if you would like. Simply let me kno...

Stardust article in local newspaper

I was really surprised to see this article in my local newspaper last week about the Stardust mission. I actually learned a few things from that article. The article focuses on the comet dust collection part of the mission. They didn't write anything about Stardust@Home but nonetheless, its was nice...

Re: New duster with question

Hi guys, Sorry about all the confusion. I only wanted to show Jay an example of what an old phase 1-2 track looked like. The purpose of this was to answer his question about the differences between phases and I thought that giving him an example of an old track (or calibration movie) was the best wa...

Re: New duster with question

Hi Elaine, From what I understood, track 40 was found in a new, previously untouched tile which they they were scanning to make new focus movies. It was said in the blog that the track was found by the team that was scanning the tile. So this should explain why nobody clicked it. I assume that the n...

Re: New duster with question

Well I reviewed the information that we have about track 40, I assumed that it was not a midnight track but it looks like I was wrong (track descriptions says otherwise). http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/candidateviewer.php?movie_vm=6456169V1&theX=217&theY=161 When I read that it looked much l...

Re: New duster with question

Phase 3 began in March of 2010 and is supposed to end soon. I personally joined in the middle of phase 2 and that was 2 years ago. From what I have seen in the past, a new phase starts when the Stardust team implements new criteria for finding tracks. For example, phase 3 is more focused on finding ...
