Classify Galaxies observed by Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) according to their shapes. Is it Spiral, Elliptical, Irregular?

Find undiscovered planets by looking at how the brightness of a star changes over time (Transit Method of exoplanet detections)!

NASA’s WISE (Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer) mission has images of thousands of debris disks and YSO disks. These disks are buried among images of millions of other kinds of astronomical objects like galaxies and nebulae, and mixed in with images that contain artifacts created by the telescope itself. In Disk Detective, you will help astronomers find these disks, homes for extrasolar planets.

Measure and map our galaxy by looking through tens of thousands of images from the Spitzer Space Telescope and WISE satellite observatory.

Provide high school students and their teachers with opportunities to practice 21st Century Skills while conducting world class research in pulsar astronomy.

Each element emits its own unique color spectrum. By splitting starlight and examining the spectrum, we can identify the composition of the star, its temperature, and other physical properties

SuperWASP detects planets by looking for ‘transits’. These occur when a planet passes in front of its parent star, temporarily obscuring some of its light. This can be detected from the Earth as a slight dimming of the star’s luminosity.

SkyView is a Virtual Observatory on the Net generating images of any part of the sky at wavelengths in all regimes from Radio to Gamma-Ray.
