Do you have a stellar inclination?

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." (Psalm 19:1 NIV)
You heard about NASA'a recent success in capturing some comet dust and bring it back to earth, right? The stuff NASA used to collect the comet particles (aerogel) is pretty amazing stuff in itself! But have you also heard that NASA is looking for volunteers to help them identify the comet dust particles. Read why volunteers are needed and what is involved in being one and you just might decide to hold up your hand. Basically you just need to have an interest, an eye for details and a computer with Internet access. Interesting.
