Zooniverse: Real science you can do.

The Zooniverse is home to the internet's largest, most popular and most successful citizen science projects. Its current projects are here but plenty more are on the way. If you're new to the Zooniverse, just pick a project and dive in - the same account will get you into all of the projects, and you can keep track of what you've contributed by watching 'My Zooniverse'.

The Zooniverse's aim is to provide a home for a whole suite of projects which will enable anyone with a web browser to contribute to science. Whether you're inspired to classify galaxies, hunt supernovae, map the moon's surface, track solar storms or take part in one of the projects which will launch over the coming weeks and months, Zooniverse will help you find a project that's right for you. What a wonderful way to contribute something very real and valuable to the scientific community!
