All good comments and a good line for discussion.
As for searching through the multitude of images streaming back from all
our probes for anything 'suspicious': There's too much scope there for
'false positives' in all the natural unusualness. Just remember back to
all the excitement about 'fossils' in the Mars Rovers images and the
MBytes of discussions on that. And there's always the over-enthusiasm
for such as the wild goose chase Guth-Venus stuff...
SOHO is a brilliant source for discovering sun grazing objects. There's
also all the NEO searches ongoing. And I'm sure that anything 2001-esq
large black rectangular objects around Saturn's rings would soon be
scrutinised if caught in a Cassini image!
NASA's freely available images are already being viewed by many eyes,
including my own on regular occasions.
Do you have any 'automated' or 'directed' searches in mind that we can
do more with for the existing stream of imagery?
