How the public help science do amazing things

Last night while trawling the internet for something entertaining and interesting to do or read or watch or anything that wasn't mind numbingly boring or stupid really I :

Read this article and was particularly interested in number four.

So then I watched this TED lecture (about 15 minutes long)

Then read this other article.

Which all lead me to zooniverse that have projects for the public to help scientists do various things.

So I decided on this project and helped scientists map the universe for further investigation.

And that is the story of how I mapped the universe on a dull Saturday night.
