You can be a scientist in your own home. NASA has many opportunities for citizen scientists to contribute to ongoing research. Here are a few opportunities:
Backyard Worlds: Planet 9 — Search the realm beyond Neptune for new brown dwarfs and planets.
GLOBE Observer — our observations help scientists track changes in clouds, water, plants, and other life in support of climate research.
JUNOCAM — You can actively participate in NASA’s Juno mission by uploading your images of Jupiter to help the team decide what JUNOCAM will photograph.
Planet Hunters TESS — Join the search for undiscovered worlds.
Stardust @ Home — NASA’s Stardust spacecraft brought home particles of interstellar material. Can you find them?
