Milky Way Project


Help scientists learn how stars form.
Find, draw bubbles in infrared data from the Spitzer Telescope.

The Milky Way Project aims to sort and measure our galaxy. We're asking you to help us find and draw bubbles in beautiful infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope.

Understanding the cold, dusty material that we see in these images, helps scientists to learn how stars form and how our galaxy changes and evolves with time.
