IAP 2020 — Steven Silverberg: Citizen Science In Astronomy: Crowdsourcing New Discoveries In The Zooniverse (1/30/2020)

Thursday January 30, 2020 3:00 pm

3:00-3:30 pm

As astronomy moves into big data, citizen science and crowdsourcing is becoming a key part of astronomical data analysis. In this interactive session, I will give a brief overview of two citizen science projects hosted by the Zooniverse project: “Backyard Worlds: Planet Nine,” and “Planet Hunters: TESS,” before turning participants loose on the projects with guidance. Bring your laptops and help find new exoplanets and brown dwarfs!
