Zooniverse is a collection of Citizen Science projects ranging
from Galaxy classification to Cancer gene mapping to Climatology
Studies. Essentially each project is a form of crowd sourced
Scientific Data Analysis. The site relies of close to a million
volunteers who are interested in the various projects. Once
they have learnt about the particular project (all designed and run by
professional scientists) they become participants in one of the most
massive scientific research projects ever!
