Got some extra time? Like science? Want to do real research?
Well, I have just the thing for you.....become a citizen scientist.
There are real scientific research projects that are ongoing and utilize people around the world to work on them via the Internet.
There are different scientific disciplines involved but I will concentrate on space-based projects.
Zooinverse.org is the website you need to check out. It lists all disciplines that have research projects.
World famous Adler Planetarium in Chicago is teaming up with NASA to further expand this citizen science capability.
So what are you waiting for? Make a contribution to science and learn/enjoy in the process.
