Milky Way Project Added to Astronomy by Internet

I’ve updated my Astronomy by Internet page to add the Zooniverse’s Milky Way Project.

Description from site:

The Milky Way Project aims to sort and measure our galaxy, the Milky Way. Initially we’re asking you to help us find and draw bubbles in beautiful infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Understanding the cold, dusty material that we see in these images, helps scientists to learn how stars form and how our galaxy changes and evolves with time.

For more information, see the Zooniverse blog post Site Goes Live. If you give it a whirl, let me know what you think.
