  • Citizen Scientists Discover Multi-Planet System

    A system of at least five exoplanets has been discovered by citizen scientists through a project called Exoplanet Explorers, part of the online platform Zooniverse, using data from NASA's Kepler space telescope. This is the first multi-planet system discovered entirely through crowdsourcing. A study describing the system has been accepted for publication in The Astronomical Journal. https://authors.library.caltech.edu/84280/ Thousands of citizen scientists got to work on Kepler data in 2017 when Exoplanet Explorers launched. It was featured on a program called Stargazing Live on the Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). On the final night of the three-day program, researchers announced the discovery of a four-planet system. Since then, they have named it K2-138 and determined that it ...

    Citizen science is a way for the average person to do real "help answer the big questions" science. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    Citizen scientists have struck again.Struck proverbial gold, that is.In the first instance of a discovery of this kind through crowdsourcing, five previously unknown exoplanets were identified using data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope.The five planets are all part of the same star system located about 620 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Aquarius.They are all being classified as super-Earths, weighing in at about two to three times larger than our planet.Their orbits around their parent star appear to be concentric circles, unlike the elliptical ones we are familiar with in the solar system.These exoplanets also orbit very close to the star — the longest orbit takes 13 days for one revolution — meaning they are all likely extremely hot.The system has been named K2-138, afte...

  • Environmental Citizen Science

    How could citizen science help to drive environmental policy? Citizen science encompasses many different ways in which citizens are involved in science. This may include mass participation schemes in which citizens use smartphone apps to submit wildlife monitoring data, as well as smaller-scale activities, for example, grassroots groups taking part in local policy debates about fracking. A Science for Environment Policy report explores academic research into citizen science practice and theory, and outlines a number of case study projects. The value of such projects for science, society, education and environmental policymaking are considered. The report can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/integration/research/newsalert/pdf/IR9_en.pdf Science for Environment Policy is a...

Since 2008, OCTO23 has developed multiple spin-off technologies and companies such as a modular non-turbine wind energy generator and the B-Squares modular electronic platform, which was one of Kickstarter's top 10 funded projects in 2012. Currently Jordan is developing OCTOtalk, a technology for underwater wireless communication and Citizen Science platform for crowdsourced ocean monitoring. Jordan received his B.S. at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his M.S. at Stanford University, both in the field of Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering with a focus on Robotics. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

A system of at least five exoplanets has been discovered by citizen scientists through a project called Exoplanet Explorers, part of the online platform Zooniverse, using data from NASA's Kepler space telescope. This is the first multi-planet system discovered entirely through crowdsourcing. A study describing the system has been accepted for publication in The Astronomical Journal. https://authors.library.caltech.edu/84280/ Thousands of citizen scientists got to work on Kepler data in 2017 when Exoplanet Explorers launched. It was featured on a program called Stargazing Live on the Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). On the final night of the three-day program, researchers announced the discovery of a four-planet system. Since then, they have named it K2-138 and determined that it has a fifth planet -- and perhaps even a sixth, according to the new paper.

Follow our Woodland Park Zoo ZooCorps and Citizen Scientist Volunteers as they explore Carkeek Park in Seattle and show you some of the ways we monitor for amphibians in our wetlands. Woodland Park Zoo, Northwest Trek, and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium partnered with Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) to train volunteers in surveying for amphibian egg masses in local ponds and wetlands for the third year. Participants are trained in the WDFW-approved protocol as well as in identification of the egg masses of eight different amphibian species. Volunteers have access to monitoring tools, including hip waders, digital cameras, and GPS units, and are monitoring for the presence of egg masses once a month from February through August in a local pond or wetland. Data sheets with information on locations of sightings are sent to biologists at WDFW, who use the information to monitor the presence of these species at sites across western Washington.

Citizen scientists have struck again.Struck proverbial gold, that is.In the first instance of a discovery of this kind through crowdsourcing, five previously unknown exoplanets were identified using data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope.The five planets are all part of the same star system located about 620 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Aquarius.They are all being classified as super-Earths, weighing in at about two to three times larger than our planet.Their orbits around their parent star appear to be concentric circles, unlike the elliptical ones we are familiar with in the solar system.These exoplanets also orbit very close to the star — the longest orbit takes 13 days for one revolution — meaning they are all likely extremely hot.The system has been named K2-138, after the second phase of the Kepler mission.After a wheel on the spacecraft malfunctioned in 2013, Kepler was reconfigured in 2014 so the telescope continued collecting data from certain parts of the sky for limited periods, and the phase since has been called K2.All five planets of K2-138 also appear to be in "resonance" — a configuration in which the size of each planet’s orbit is a ratio of other planets’ orbits.That suggests the planets all formed together in a smooth, rotating disc before moving closer in toward the star over millions of years.The announcement was made Thursday at the ongoing 231st meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Washington, D.C.,by researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and California Institute of Technology (Caltech).The findings have also been accepted for publication in the Astrophysical Journal.The project that allowed citizen scientists to make the discovery is called Exoplanet Explorers, and is part of the popular citizen scientist platform Zooniverse.K2 data was made publicly available for the project, and a training program — designed by Caltech’s Jesse Christiansen and MIT’s Ian Crossfield — taught users what they should be looking for.The K2 data was mostly light curves, showing the intensity of light from individual stars.If there was a dip in the intensity, it could indicate a possible transit across the star’s face by a planet or some other object.Users would look through the data, and indicate for each graph whether they thought the curve looked like a transit or not.If at least 10 users looked at any particular curve, and at least nine of them (90 percent) indicated a possible transit, Christiansen and Crossfield would analyze that specific signal further.And that is how the five exoplanets of K2-138 were found."We put all this data online and said to the public, 'Help us find some planets.'It’s exciting, because we’re getting the public excited about science, and it’s really leveraging the power of the human cloud.… It turns out the world is big enough that there’s a lot of people who are interested in doing some amateur science.And the human eye in many cases is very effective in separati

How could citizen science help to drive environmental policy? Citizen science encompasses many different ways in which citizens are involved in science. This may include mass participation schemes in which citizens use smartphone apps to submit wildlife monitoring data, as well as smaller-scale activities, for example, grassroots groups taking part in local policy debates about fracking. A Science for Environment Policy report explores academic research into citizen science practice and theory, and outlines a number of case study projects. The value of such projects for science, society, education and environmental policymaking are considered. The report can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/integration/research/newsalert/pdf/IR9_en.pdf Science for Environment Policy is a free news and information service published by the European Commission’s Directorate-General Environment, which provides the latest environmental policy-relevant research findings.
