Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics: Pulsar Hunters
Where – The Science Fields | Family Encounters |
The Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics needs your help in our search for pulsars - really dense dead spinning stars. Faced with millions of pulsar candidates, we need your help to identify interesting patterns in the data to improve our machine learning classifier and tell us which pulsars we should point our telescopes at again!
Pulsar Hunters is an interactive installation where participants can learn in person about pulsar signals from Jodrell Bank researchers and contribute to classifying real data taken with the LOFAR Telescope. As part of a global citizen science project, you can make a significant contribution to our scientific endeavour and share your feedback directly with the scientists.
