Citizen Science

Oxford has led the development of online “citizen science” programmes, which use the web to recruit hundreds of thousands of volunteers to assist researchers in sorting through their images.
The first project, Galaxy Zoo (www.galaxyzoo.org), launched in 2007 and has proved wildly successful, producing more than 20 papers and generating follow-up efforts with major facilities including the Hubble Space Telescope. Chris Lintott , http://www.zooniverse.org
