    10. 10. Motivation Contribution to science (i.e. no sandbox games, it must really be a contribution to science) Learn more about astronomy You see things that very few people have seen before Galaxy Zoo: Exploring the Motivations of Citizen Science Volunteers http://link.aip.org/link/doi/10.3847/AER200903
    11. 11. Contributions• Galaxy Zoo: 24 papers published• Do spiral galaxies have a preferred direction of rotation? (No)• Much larger number of Blue Ellipticals than initially thought• Astronomers previously thought that all red galaxies are elliptical

    14. 14. Motivation• Recognition by peers and professionals• Publication in magazines and books• Contribute to astronomy research (ie. Publication of papers)
    15. 15. Contributions• Beautiful astronomical images• Contribution to astrophotography websites (Astronomy Picture of the Day) and publications (The World at Night)• Hardware hack: PhilipsToUcam Pro• Image processing techniques: Lucky imaging• Advanced contributions (coauthors on papers) to several areas of astronomy: supernova, planetary sciences, time- consuming and long time coverage
