Over the past few months, we have been deeply engaged in the process of writing 12 papers on the Stardust Interstellar Preliminary Examination (ISPE), of which Stardust@home is a critical component. Indeed, the paper describing the Stardust@home project is the first paper in the series after the summary paper. Three days ago, we submitted these 12 papers to the ISPE Science Council for review. After this review and revision, we will submit these papers to the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science. These papers report on the discovery of 70 unambiguous tracks in the aerogel collector, the extraction and analysis of 42 candidate impact features, and the discovery and analysis of craters discovered in the aluminum foil collectors.
