Help NASA analyze more than 1.5 million images taken by astronauts on the International Space Station!


Citizen science is a great way to get your audiences and students more involved. JPL's Museum Alliance shares one way to do this: through Cosmoquest’s Image Detective - The latest in citizen/community science!  Have your students and visitors help NASA categorize and analyze more than 1.5 million images taken from the ISS.  It’s as easy as looking for clouds, mountains or rivers. Set up a facilitated station on your museum floor or use it in your classrooms!
