Diese Mail habe ich heute in meiner Postkiste gefunden, ich denke, das kann für die nicht Boinc'er interessant sein.

We are writing to let you know about an exciting new phase that is about
to begin in the Stardust@home search. Ever since we launched Stardust@home
nearly a year ago, you and other dedicated "dusters" have proved incredibly
successful at detecting possible particle tracks in the Stardust interstellar
collector. We can truly say that the ability of our dusters to pinpoint even
the smallest and most subtle features in the aerogel has been a constant
source of amazement to us. Some of these features may well turn out to be
the very first solid samples of matter from outside the solar system ever
collected.

Now we can do even better. We are currently reprocessing the images we took
of the Stardust collector so as to double the magnification of the focus
movies. By scanning these new movies our dusters will be able to pinpoint
even smaller and subtler potential tracks. A new stardust track hunt, of
unprecedented sensitivity, will be on!

But first -- a short break. In order to launch this new Stardust@home
"Phase 2" we will first need to end the current phase and take the virtual
microscope (VM) off line for around two weeks. Our plan is to close down
the VM between July 27 and August 9. The training and testing features,
as well as the actual search for particle tracks, will all be unavailable
during this time. We hope to have the forums and the rest of the website
open during the transition.

When we temporarily disable the Stardust@home VM, we will also finalize the
results of all the dusters who took part in Phase 1. The scores, rankings
and candidate lists from this phase will all be preserved and permanently
displayed on the Website. When the new Stardust@home Phase 2 launches in
early August all dusters will begin anew with a clean slate and an equal
chance at discovering more candidate stardust tracks. For more information
on our transition to Phase 2 see our website at
http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1858.

We thank you all for your amazing contributions to Stardust@home, and we look
forward to the next phase of this historic project. Your talent and dedication
to this project have been truly impressive. We couldn't do it without you!

Nicht nur für die nicht-BOINCer. ;)

Ich habe heute morgen die wohl letzte Chance genutzt, noch in die besten 10% der ersten Phase zu kommen. :D

Es macht einfach Spaß, mal nicht nur die Rechner crunchen zu lassen, sondern auch selbst mal was zu tun, wie hier am Virtuellen Mikroskop nach den Spuren interstellarer Staubpartikeln zu suchen.

Phase 2 wird dann noch schwieriger: In den "Calibration Movies" werden einige Spuren (Tracks) sein, die wirklich fast unsichtbar sind. :shocked:
Also braucht man schon sehr gute Augen und einen guten Bildschirm. :cool:

Hier die aktuelle Info von der Stardust@home Seite von heute Morgen

The move to Stardust@home Phase 2 is about to begin! We need to finish a few more tasks before we disable the VM, effectively bringing Phase 1 to a close. So we will be leaving the VM active through the weekend. We plan to disable the VM as well as testing and registration at 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time on Monday, July 30th.

The rest of the Stardust@home website, including the forum, will remain online during the transition to Phase 2. During the down time some parts of the website may experience sporadic periods of unavailability, but they should not last long. We estimate that we will be ready to launch Phase 2 within roughly two weeks time following the close of Phase 1.

We are excited about this second Phase of the project and extend our greatest thanks to everyone who has participated thus far.

-The Stardust@home Team

... also - sinngemäß,
Das Mikroskop und die Anmeldeseite bleibt bis Montag 10 Uhr Pacific-Time online, wird dann aber abgeschaltet. Der Rest von Stardust@home einschließlich Forum bleibt weiterhin erreichbar. Während der 'Downzeit' können Teile der Site sporadisch nicht erreichbar sein, das sollte aber nie lange dauern. Wir erwarten, das wir innerhalb 2 Wochen, nachdem Phase 1 abgeschlossen ist, die Phase 2 starten können. Wir sind gespannt auf die zweite Phase und danken allen, die bis jetzt mitgemacht haben.


Schönen Sonntag noch, trotz Regen

Hallo Stardust-Fans, es geht weiter, seit gestern ist das Virtuelle Mikroskop wieder online

liest du hier (http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1877)

oder hier

Today marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in the story of Stardust@home. With the launch of the new and improved Stardust@home Phase 2 volunteers ("dusters") will be able to search for interstellar dust particles at an unprecedented level of sensitivity. Even the subtlest tracks and particles, which may have eluded detection in the first phase of the project, now stand an excellent chance of being found out and investigated by ever-vigilant dusters.

The new search will proceed much like Phase 1. The Virtual Microscope (VM) displays stacks of images (focus movies) of microscope scans of the Stardust Interstellar Dust Aerogel Collector, and dusters determine if they see a track, no track, or if the movie has bad focus. But now some of the Phase 2 focus movies are twice the magnification of the Phase 1 movies.


Phase 2 will be much more challenging. During Phase 1, dusters proved that they could find amazingly subtle features in the collector, so the calibration movies that we use to measure efficiency will have much more subtle features in them. Expect it to be more difficult to achieve high scores, and for your sensitivity and specificity to be lower than in Phase 1. This is on purpose.

Phase 1 dusters should review our new Tutorial pages and also review the current list of candidate particle tracks .

For all dusters who participated in Phase 1 you can still view your Phase 1 events from your My Events page, and see a listing of all those who had achieved a rank in the top 100 during Phase 1.

For all communications with fellow dusters and the Stardust@home Team please use the Stardust@home Bulletin Board .

We are extremely grateful for your contributions to this project and are excited to begin this new phase.

viel Spaß beim Sternenstaub suchen ...

Ich habe diesen Thread mal wieder aus der Versenkung geholt. http://www.cosgan.de/images/smilie/verschiedene/p100.gif

Sucht noch jemand beim ganzen Yoyo-Fieber nach Sternenstaub ??? http://www.cosgan.de/images/midi/haushalt/k050.gif

Da das ganze im Browser läuft, belastet das unser Yoyo-Race ja nicht sonderlich.

Bin neugierig, wer noch dabei ist - ich habe auch so ungefähr 2 Monate Pause gemacht.

Bin seit heute auch dabei! Ist wirklich faszinierend und ein neter Zeitvertreib ^^

7 Seiten Hauptforum durchgeschaut, um diesen Thread zu finden, weil ich dachte, hier wären nur BOINC-Projekte untergebracht... :p ;)

Dank Stardust@home wurde nun vermutlich das erste interstellare Staubteilchen gefunden:

Ich habe diesen Thread mal wieder aus der Versenkung geholt, sucht noch jemand nach interstellarem Staub ? Ich habe es wegen anderer Prioritäten etwas aus den Augen verloren - wollte aber doch nochmal sehen, was da geht ...

Das Mikroskop ist immer noch aktiv
