Solar System, Citizen Science
When you’re trying to catch a planet, you’d better look twice! Volunteers on NASA’s Planet Patrol Citizen Science Project finished checking their first batch of 999 exoplanet candidates from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission. The results, published in Monthly Notices of... Read More
Solar System, Planets of Our Solar System, Citizen Science
A new NASA citizen science project, Jovian Vortex Hunter, seeks your help spotting vortices---spiral wind patterns—and other phenomena in gorgeous photos of the planet Jupiter.
Today we’re saying thank you to everyone who has pitched in to classify wildlife photos at snapshotwisconsin.org. Over the last four years you helped scientists model species distributions, measure vegetation phenology, study how deer use habitats to escape extreme temperatures, and much more.... Read More
Universe, Citizen Science
Citizen scientists have discovered a strange lopsided system consisting of three very massive stars orbiting around one another very rapidly---a rare combination that has scientists asking how this system could have formed.
When the 10,000th observation was submitted to Mountain Rain or Snow on the morning of March 15th, wet snow was falling on much of the Sierra Nevada. The National Weather Service was predicting slick mountain passes and possible delays due to rain for commuters in the city, but Mountain Rain or... Read More
Citizen scientist Thomas Thomopoulos created this enhanced-color image using raw data from the JunoCam instrument (Figure A). At the time the raw image was taken, the Juno spacecraft was about 44,000 miles (71,000 kilometers) above Jupiter’s cloud tops, at a latitude of about 55 degrees south, and... Read More
