I've been with StarDust since 1997 :)

What an interesting coincidence this turned out to be.

Years ago, as a member of the Planetary Society, I was automatically listed on something I never really thought would come back around to me.

Until I did a google on myself 5 minutes ago. Turns out, I've been with this program since 1997 :) (yes, OUR StarDust program!)

http://stardust.jpl.nasa.gov/overview/m ... amesk.html (My "real" name is Lee Kambarian if you so choose to verify this on your own, it's on this page)

Anyways, apparently they encoded a bunch of names onto the Stardust satellite (see this for more details http://stardust.jpl.nasa.gov/overview/m ... p/faq.html) before they shot it into space.. and viola.. here I am 9 years later... doing the research as a volunteer, for the exact same Space Craft.

I wonder if this is how Darth Vader felt seeing C-3PO again... hmm.

Just kinda a neat coincidence :)
Don't sweat the small stuff. It's part of life, and no one gets out alive.

Me, too. I vaguely remembered signing up. It's a bit thrilling seeing my name in the list.

Tim_Yoda, i'll send you a PM too to ensure you read this info, but will post here as well "just in case"...

That link is only to those with K as the first letter of the last name. Be sure to check your appropriatte last name letter page :)
