Be part of the Zooniverse

The Zooniverse is a hugely successful Citizen Science project which currently has 561,087 people taking part across the world.

The Zooniverse encourages anyone to take part in classifying features from photographs to help scientists and researchers process the large amount of data they have to deal with.  Nine projects are currently running, including: 'Explore the surface of the moon', 'How do galaxies merge?', 'Search for exploding stars', and 'Hear whales communicate'.

Find out what has already been discovered in the original Zooniverse project, Galaxy Zoo, here.
