Instructions for the QuarkNet Cosmic Ray Detector Solar Sensitivity Project

Free video streaming by Ustream
This is a live feed from a cosmic ray detector--not one of the QuarkNet detectors, but one based upon a multi-stage image intensifier (similar to the way night vision goggles work.) Muons appear (fairly infrequently, given the 1 cm^2 detector area) as linear streaks set across the chaotic background of thermal noise.

I2U2 Web Page Design Suggestions

For the wiki page dedicated to each of the following projects, click on the number (e.g., "1."):

1. Scanning Tunneling Microscopy of alkanethiols
2. Atomic Force Microscopy of DNA tiles
3. Cosmic Ray detection with the QuarkNet Cosmic Ray e-Lab
4. Environmental sensor data from LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory
5. Pilot studies with an e-Lab from STAR (a detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, RHIC)
6. Asteroid studies using data obtained by remote observation at the New Mexico Skies Observatory, and locally
7. Star Formation Rates in high red shift galaxy clusters using data from Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes
8. Active Galactic Nuclei studies using data from NOAO telescopes
9. ZEBRAFISH! Zebrafish genetics studies
10. Variable Star studies with both local and remote observation
11. Particle physics studies using CMS test beam e-lab with OGRE, and soon monte carlo data
12. Bioinformatics studies (topics to be determined)
13. Proton-Induced X-ray (PIXE) studies of artifacts
14. Astroimaging using archived, remote and locally obtained data
