The Zooniverse has engaged 1.5 million registered users in online citizen science with hundreds of professional researchers around the world. Since 2007, Zooniverse has partnered with research teams to create and support over 70 online citizen science projects. Our goal is to enable research that would not be possible, or practical, otherwise. Zooniverse research results in new discoveries, datasets useful to the wider research community, and many publications.
