Search for New Worlds at Home With NASA’s Planet Patrol Project

 Hey, Space Placers!

Want to go where no one has gone before? 

Search for strange new worlds?

If so, NASA has just the ticket for you: 

Planet Patrol

This latest NASA "Citizen Scientist" Project is described as, "Volunteers will help determine which TESS snapshots include signals from potential planets and which ones show planet impersonators." TESS is NASA's newest exoplanet hunter spacecraft which has already found hundreds of new worlds.

So if you have the time to volunteer, go planet hunting!

Good luck!
