Vizzuality has been working with teams from Oxford University and NASA on a brand new project to find new planets outside our solar system.

NASA uses powerful computers to analyze the huge stream of data coming from the Kepler space observatory currently orbiting the sun. However, there are many cases where our human brains appear to be better at understanding this data, especially when it comes to identifying smaller planets, like Earth.

Through our Citizen Science project, planethunters.org, you have the opportunity to contribute to these important new discoveries, and to join NASA in the search for Earth-like planets orbiting other stars.
