Citizen Science September

New projects. More science. All month long

September 2012 is going to be a month like no other in the history of the Zooniverse.

We have lots of new projects lined up - including some that are really different from anything we've tried before. We're so excited that we've even given the month a name - Citizen Science September - and a logo, and we'll use these to help bring you up to speed with the new projects as well as encouraging you to re-explore some existing ones.

It all began back in 2007 when Galaxy Zoo asked for the public's help in classifying a huge database of galaxies. The response was overwhelming and since then we've launched more than 10 citizen science projects. Some of those projects have come to a conclusion, having helped researchers and provided valuable data. Some have evolved and changed, and others keep rolling as the data keeps coming in. We've have asked for your help in mapping the galaxy, finding exoplanets, transcribing ancient texts, listening to whale calls and even sailing the high seas - just to name few ways that our volunteers have been aiding scientists in their work.

What began with astronomy has spread out to include climate science, marine biology and papyrology. During September (and beyond) you'll see even more areas of research brought into the Zooniverse fold. We're really excited to introduce these exciting new projects to you and to introduce new communities to the Zooniverse. There will also be major updates to some of our existing projects.
