Stardust@Home - pre-registration

Stardust@Home - pre-registration Many of you have probably heard of the probe that returned to earth the other day containing comet samples. That probe also contains (we think!) interstellar dust. But the estimate is that there will be about 40 grains.... so the UCB people are calling for volunteers to look at the scanned images of the aerogel returned from the probe to help them hunt for the grains. So if you've always wanted to do some NASA science, here's your big chance!
