Citizen scientists helping with major research projects

From Nine To Noon, 9:41 am on 13 August 2015

Zooniverse is the website that's enlisting the eyes and brains of hundreds of thousands of ordinary people to do the grunt work for major science projects. At Zooniverse.org volunteers can help spot supermassive black holes in distant galaxies, identify animals from camera traps on the Serengeti Plains and even look for exotic subatomic particles in data from the Large Hadron Collider. Chris Lintott is co-founder.
