Eyes on the Universe

April 2, 5:30 p.m.

Free with museum admission

The universe is HUGE and to study it takes a lot of eyes. From researchers at the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering to the citizen scientists that help them sort through mountains of data on interactive web-sites like Zooniverse, this exhibit explores how working together can help us make new discoveries.

Explore the Eyes on the Universe exhibit with Professor Lucy Fortson from the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics.

Fortson was one of the founders of Zooniverse, the citizen scientist web portal, and has worked on the Galaxy Zoo project which has documented thousands of galaxies.
