    The stardust probe landed safely! NASA is asking for volunteers
    to sift through millions of micrographs to be taken of the
    aerogel which captured the particles coming off the comet it
    encountered. They have a site interested parties can go to if one
    wants to participate. It is not starting immediately, first an automated
    microscope camera will be taking photos, literally millions of them,
    each with a field of view the size of a grain of sand where they
    will be looking for these micron sized particles. Once identified the
    sample will be taken for microanalysis.
    So here is the pre-registration site, it will start in earnest in a few
    months, this is a site to show interest, you just give them
    your email address and they will contact you later when it gets going:

    My friend showed this to me the other day and we have both signed up. I wonder how many people want to do this. Did you sign up?

    yep. I used to work on die inspect at Lucent, worked under a
    microscope 8 hours a day. I learned to spot irregularities.
    Also caught pink-eye but thats another story.
