Galaxy Zoo

a Zooniverse citizen science project

For more than a decade, Zooniverse has asked volunteers to help explore galaxies near and far, sampling a fraction of the roughly one hundred billion that are scattered throughout the observable Universe.

Each one of the systems, containing billions of stars, has had a unique life, interacting with its surroundings and with other galaxies in many different ways; the aim of the Galaxy Zoo team is to try and understand these processes, and to work out what galaxies can tell us about the past, present and future of the Universe as a whole.

Planet Hunters

a Zooniverse citizen science project

Discover new planets around stars outside of our own Solar System! The recently launched Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is providing us with a huge amount of data that lets us look for planets outside of our own Solar System. Over the next two years, TESS will be busy surveying two-hundred-thousand bright nearby stars, measuring and recording their brightness every two minutes. Uncover lots of interesting planetary systems and help Zooniverse explore the formation and evolution of these worlds. Findings may even bring us one step closer to answering the question that we all seek to answer: Are we alone in the Universe?
