Did I find something?

Post by danhart »

I think there's a track on movie #3357721V1. Anyone have any thoughts?

The stuff you see in the bottom frame is on the surface. The gel isn't flat in this movie. It should be marked "bad focus".

There I saved you the trouble of posting this again in the other topic after this one gets locked. :P

Movie 699614V1--a track perhaps?

Post by de_revolutionibus »

I think I've found one, but a hundred and fifty some seem to disagree. Next time you see it, keep this in mind, and let me know if I'm crazy here... :wink: :lol:

There's a dust particle on the camera's lens, near the bottom. It's kind of fuzzy. Once the movie loads completely, focus down and keep your eye on the dust particle. When you almost completely focus in, you'll see something seem to start to focus right beside (on the left) of the camera dust. It's kind of small, and pretty fuzzy still. Perhaps if the camera could focus down a little more, it would become more noticeable. When you focus up and down quickly, it becomes a lot more apparent.

Take a look. Does anyone agree with me?

A find or just fooled? Possible track

Post by silveys »

I still new to stardust and getting better at scans, but I came accoss one that I had to stare at for a long time.

http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... d=829123V1

I don't think the focus goes deep enough to tell for sure and what I see is hard to spot. It looks like the very top of the beginning of a track very similar to what many of the calibrated scans look like.

Where to look...
Start in the center of the image, go up about halfway, then go left over to the top of the edge of the "blob" there. Slowly focus all the way down and watch for a verrrry faint circle to start to form. I run out of focus adjustment before I can be certain. It caught my eye, then I had to tilt my view several ways to be sure I actually saw at least a shadow of some thing. Most scans I finish in a minute or less, this one took much longer to decide. I seem to be the only one out of 142 so far to mark it as a possible. Opinions?

I don't see anything. (however I just quit for the night because I can't see anything anymore :wink: ) However I do think this post would have belonged in the "I think I've found a track, what do you think?" thread

Big hit on aerogel

Post by spaceinvestigator »

Something big has hit the aerogel on frame 9650471v1. Focus is OK but the "thing" is so deep in the aerogel yhat it can not be seen by the microscope. What do I answer?

509051V1 and 3404574V1 discussion

Those two slides show classic fracturing of the aerogel substrate of an impact. These artifacts might be small chips of asteriods that impacted at just the right speed, causing the stress marks, yet not blowing through the gel like it had enough momentum to do it. Considering the size and the damage to the substrate, i'd say we caught some carbonaceous or iron asteroid fragments.

Let's get that sample into a "Hot Cell" and see what we got in there.
