Gravitational lenses can act as cosmic telescopes helping us see further. We need your help to find them!
Why Citizen Science?
The amount of data collected by modern research equipment is often too large for any one person or small team of people to effectively analyze. Over the past several decades, scientists have explored partnering with the public to help do real science when human eyes and thinking are still better at analysis than computers.
The Adler's Citizen Science department designs and develops web applications using data sets that would normally take a science team over 100 years to analyze and, with the help of a worldwide network of volunteers, complete the analysis with a high level of accuracy in weeks or months.
