Help Find Bubbles in Space!

Hey Chasers!

I found this amazing project today and just had to share it. The Milky Way Project is a citizen participation initiative that allows you to identify bubbles in stellar gas created by massive stars through images from the Spitzer Space Telescope Images are provided to you to mark what you believe to be these stellar bubbles that are later conformed through a series of reviews by experts and computer algorithms. Amazing way to become tangibly involved in living astronomy project!

About Chasing Atlantis

In July 2011, when space enthusiasts travelled the world to witness the epic closure of the space shuttle era, Matthew Cimone began a journey of discovering acceptance, belonging, and himself. Joined by Paul Muzzin, director and long-time friend, Matthew endeavours to connect with a community of sci-fi enthusiasts, pop culture icons, and current and former space workers in attempt to resuscitate a dream that was so far out of reach it might as well be space.
