By All, for All: Citizen Science to Reveal Cosmos
Finding a new moon around an asteroid, confirming an exoplanet from another solar system 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 and citizen astronomers from the Unistellar network to learn how to contribute.

- 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.
