The Milkyway Project

Today we have launched a brand new Zooniverse site: The Milky Way Project (http://www.milkywayproject.org). The Milky Way Project aims to sort and measure our galaxy, the Milky Way. Initially we're asking you to help us find and draw bubbles in beautiful infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope. Understanding the cold, dusty material that we see in these images helps scientists to learn how stars form and how our galaxy changes and evolves with time.

As well as drawing out bubbles in our galaxy, we're also asking you to mark other objects such as star clusters, galaxies and ghostly red 'fuzzy' objects. We're asking you to help us map star formation in our galaxy! Take a look at our tutorial page for the complete run down, with examples (http://www.milkywayproject.org/tutorial).

Talk Zooniverse

Also launching today is the Zooniverse's new collaboration and community tool: Talk. Milky Way Talk resides at http://talk.milkywayproject.org and there you can find, collect and comment on the objects you see in the Milky Way Project. Every time you classify an image in the Milky Way Project you will be prompted to 'discuss' that image via Talk. Talk lets you collect objects together and shares those collections with everybody else. Talk is a brand new feature, developed in-house at Zooniverse HQ. It continues to evolve and change as you use it and we hope that through the Milky Way Project, we can make Talk even better.

You can find us on Twitter @milkywayproj and out blog is at http://blogs.zooniverse.org/mwp. We hope to see you on Milky Way Talk!
