Citizen scientists have become critical for helping researchers gather data from around the United States, and even around the world — information that would be impossible to accumulate as part of a standard research study.
Got a few minutes to kill? Take part in real science projects on Zooniverse! Scientists need your help finding and identifying galaxies, planets, and other astronomical objects in images and data collected by NASA telescopes.---If astronomy doesn't interest you, check out their other projects, such as classifying weather patterns and whale songs, exploring the ocean floor, and identifying archeological data. The projects are easy to do and tutorials guide you each step of the way. #science
