Join IceHunters to find a Second Target for Pluto Mission

I've often mentioned the growing number of citizen-scientist projects that allow members of the general public to participate in leading-edge scientific research projects. Check out this recent list of such projects: Citizen Science projects for Planetary Science: Get Involved! Do Science! - The Planetary Society Blog. Find more such projects in the HobbySpace Astronomy and Space Science sections.

The Zooniverse organization offers several citizen science projects and a new one is called IceHunters. The goal of this project is help find a second deep space object for NASA's New Horizons probe to visit after it passes Pluto, the probe's primary goal. Here is a description of the IceHunters program: The most exciting citizen science project ever (to me, anyway) - The Planetary Society Blog

The IceHunters Tutorial page has the following video describing the task for participants:


Here's a NASA video report on the New Horizons mission to Pluto:

Space Race II

"With just one more shuttle mission to go before the program ends this summer, a new space race is already well underway," said NBC anchor Lester Holt.

Here is the NBC Night News video:
