NASA Accepting Internet Volunteers for 'Dusting'

NASA is looking for volunteers to spend about 30,000 hours looking at minuscule particles on a web-based microscope to identify traces of interstellar dust collected by the 'Stardust' spacecraft, expected to return to Earth on Sunday.

And the best part is that if you find the right kind of dust, you can name the dust after yourself. Who needs a degree in rocket science when there's dust with your name on it?
