A nice example of a track...

Post by Ziggy »

This has got to be the clearest track I have witnessed... (StarDust or not - something fast has travelled through the gel at an angle!)

...and you know what? - it was worth it!

Boy that does look interesting.

Before the horked over the movie IDs you could fish around in
near by numbers and find the adjacent track. This or course hurt
nothing, and allowed tracking down adjacent parts of movies. Sadly
this is impossible anymore.

This just cries out for someone to find the adjacent movie.

I looked at this one a few times Driven1, and and it does appear that it is a particle sitting on the surface which you are hitting just at the bottom focus scale. So I'd flag that one as bad focus too.

As the others have mentioned, I don't think anyone has yet encountered a big classic "bubble" like the cal. movies show. The very small "tracks" a lot of us have been seeing, may well be "inclusions" and not really tracks at all(although some of the calibration movie tracks are very small.)

More evidence, at least to my reasoning, that most of these very small "fly speck" size subsurface mystery dots are probably not real tracks is that if Intersteller Dust is as scare as predicted, the chance of getting 3 or 4 hits in 1 Movie are about slim to none :wink:

That is cool. I bet that is a track. This one looks like another one coming in at an angle. Not as big, but you can see a speck of something at the bottom of the track. 31 of 95 people noticed this one so far. If this isn't one, I'll be surprised.

This is my best movie... what do you think? For me is very similar to the calibration movies !!!

Don't like it goldrake. It looks the right shape, but it might be a blemish in a scar of the surface, and it can't focus far enough to see it change shape. Fortunately I have no authority to say it isn't one. I would like to see it focused deeper.

Today I came across this one:
http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =4515810V1

It's very faint, lower center, but in my untrained opinion, it looks very carrot-shaped. Less than a quarter of others viewing it agree with me though...

This one very similar: http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =4397867V1

I guess it's some inclusion but so far it has passed the first review :D

simular

Hi kari,

Ha, ha, :D
Even the numbers on the URL are simular!

I couldn't pass that up. Most(not all)of what I have seen on these two pages are not down into the aerogel. In other words they are on the surface.

Please remember, the tracks are down below the surface, below all the black or dark gray surface dust. If you see surface wrinkles like this one, you are not below the surface. (4397867V1)
(and I must have marked 50 just like this)

Yes kari,

7058694V1 is very simular to 4397867V1. Now I agree with you. Won't it be wonderful when someone posts a real stardust track here so we could all look at it.

The tracks on these two pages may turn out to be something, we will just have to wait until the Stardust scientists evaluate the many spots and specks that we have marked for them.

Thanks,
fjgiie

Maybe my movie http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =4397867V1
is simply a "bad focus", but I've seen many calibration movies very similar.

I've in my list many movie like your http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =4397867V1
and obviously I hope that this will be real tracks. :wink:
