How You Can Help The Universe – Get Involved In Citizen Science Projects!

You know how I like interactive websites…this is “Zooniverse“. Citizens unite for science and help the world!

“The Zooniverse is a collection of web-based citizen science projects that use the efforts of volunteers to help researchers deal with the flood of data that confronts them.”

This is a video by Google which shows you how important you are in scientific research (this pertains to space):

Could you discover a galaxy? Yes! But it’s not all about space – there’s so much more!

Do you like to take part in science projects, or experiment in labs? Zooniverse may be just the thing you need to stretch out your science legs and help mankind in the process. It’s like information crowd-sourcing for geeks!

 With ticklers like “Hear Whales communicate“, “Model Earth’s climate using historic ship logs“, “You’re hot on the trail of bats!“, “Study the lives of ancient Greeks“, “Help astronomers understand star clusters” and  “Go wild in the Serengeti!“, they not only educate, but invite the public to help process and transcribe science data, as well as have you interact with the data so you can declare your own observations. I’ve started to do some specimen transcriptions, and while that might seem boring to some, I thoroughly enjoy it.

The world needs our help – having a collective hive of interested and excited people take a look at the wonders of the world will certainly create more understanding, more documentation, and more collective scientific knowledge that we all need and can share worldwide. Bill Nye and Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson will be proud of you 😀

Go have fun and be that scientific citizen detective –  the world will thank you!

We have thousands of specimen images, labels and ledgers from museum collections and the biologists who maintain those collections. These contain information about the where and when a species was found in the past. We need you to help us transcribe that data and make it available for further use in biodiversity and conservation research. Along the way, you will be possibly be finding species that have never been observed anywhere else!”
