Some time ago, I was asked to write an article for Sky & Telescope Magazine about Planet Hunters, citizen science, and how the public can contribute to science with the Zooniverse. The new edition (March) of Sky & Telescope is out, and my article (‘How You Can Find An Exoplanet‘) is featured on the cover. I’m really pleased with how the article turned out, and I especially love the cover slogan: ‘Planet Hunting Goes Public: No Sky, No Scope, No Problem!’ Maybe we should adopt that as the official Planet Hunters motto. What do you think?
You can read more in the digital version if you have a subscription or in the printed magazine which should be out on newsstands soon. There is also a digital companion piece to the article that I wrote on Planet Four and Space Warps which is freely available online here if you care to check it out.
