Milky Way Project
|Goal||Help scientists learn how stars form.|
|Task||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.
|How to Join||
It is recommended you watch the brief tutorial video to understand the basics of the Milky Way Project's Bubble interface. It won't be long before you are expertly annotating and measuring the contents of our galaxy.
