I’ve just updated my Astronomy by Internet page. I added two new opportunities to explore our solar system from your desktop:
Planet Four (Zooniverse) – citizen science project designed to help planetary scientists identify and measure features on the surface of Mars . . . the likes of which don’t exist on Earth.
Asteroid Mappers: Vesta Edition – Classify craters and other features in high resolution pictures of Vesta from NASA’s Dawn Mission.
I also had to take down links to several projects which have been completed:
- Mars Public Mapping Project (bye bye Stars for Mars)
- GalaxyZoo: Hunt for Supernova – (Zooniverse)
- NASA Clickworkers
If you know of an internet based astronomy project that isn’t on Astronomy by Internet, would you let me know? Thanks!
