Torah Kachur

Fancy yourself as an astronomer?  Have a telescope will do science?


Now is your chance.  Get into the action with a new computer game called Clouds.  The Spitzer Space telescope and the Herschel Space Observatory generate a incredible images but also an incredible amount of data and they need your help.



The sheer volume of data gathered in the Milky Way project is just too much for solo astronomers to sort through so they invented a game to crowd-source data analysis.  Anyone can look at these beautiful images of our galaxy taken and start bagging and tagging your own galactic clouds.   Think you’re too busy?  You can do it from your smartphone or tablet, so get geeky and join the universe.


Does anyone else see the Hand of God in this one?  Obvi
