Re: Third Thursday Telecons

Hey, thanks for this month's telecon (August '18). Glad you enjoyed it John, and good to see you're still with us! If only such honest and informative responses from the team had existed earlier and throughout the project. And had been made accessible so quickly on the site. These are lessons to be...

New estimates on the number of actual interstellar particles

Hi Everyone, Some of us were musing on the side regarding the science team's initial estimates on the number of true interstellar particles we'll find. Very early on there was a prediction that there would be approximately 45 actual interstellar particles within all of the aerogel from the collector...

Re: Weird Views in FOILS

Leonardo or Neanderthal? Anyway, this is all very amazing and quite talented indeed! I'm going to suggest this work to a science/art event coming up here either in the fall or spring (date not set yet). I'm sure they'll want to display it, so hopefully you'll be willing to have that happen. I'll kee...

Re: Third Thursday Telecons

It would be great to have you join us Fatima. The "normal" time is now the Third Thursday of every month at 11am Pacific (18:00 UTC). But sometimes we have to change it up, so keep an eye on this forum a day or so beforehand, or if you want to send me a PM with your email address, I'll directly send...

No Third Thursday Telecon for April 2018

Hello Everyone,

I'm sorry to report, but we’re going to have to cancel this month’s Stardust telcon as well. But there's a good reason; the team is running more analyses, which means we should have much more to report next month.

Thanks for your understanding, and for sticking with us!

Re: Where are the signed up members from?

Hi Puddock, As always, sorry for the late reply. But I think I'll be a little more active now that some other stuff is out of the way. In any case, you ask a great question! A month ago, I would still have said search Foils as the top priority. Now, I'm not sure since our experiments with machine le...
