By All, for All: Citizen Science to Reveal Cosmos
Confirming an exoplanet from another solar system, fighting light pollution to view the cosmos or refining the trajectory and the shape of an asteroid coming near our Earth: The uncharted space territories can now be explored by the people, leading to a much better understanding of our cosmic surroundings. Come chat with NASA, the SETI Institute, Globe@Night and citizen astronomers from the Unistellar network to learn how you too can join this space journey.

- What’s left to be discovered in space ? So much. Think the first exoplanet detection was only confirmed thirty years ago.
- Can amateurs truly contribute to space discoveries ? They sure do: Already almost 10% of asteroids are discovered by amateurs, and most of comets are.
- What about finding extraterrestrial life ? As an amateur, you can contribute, for instance to characterize exoplanets.
