From other posters here I learned that there was a Citizen Scientist project similar to Ice Investigators which was called Ice Hunters. After googling a bit, it seems this project had the same key people as instigators, the same goal of finding KBO for New Horizons and the same method of finding them. A couple of questions:
1. Does anyone know why the Ice Hunters project was ended earlier this year and this new Ice Investigators project was started?
2. Is there a page where one can see the final statistics of the Ice Hunters project? I'm thinking of things like: total images viewed, total transients marked, total KBO found, total new KBO officially recognized, total variable stars marked, etc. I think those data could be quite interesting, just to see what can be achieved.
I found the link http://www.icehunters.org/catalogue.php which apparently has the catalogues of objects found. Roughly estimating from the number of objects per page and the number of pages, it appears the following was found:
Number of KBO: 150
Number of variable stars: 84,000
Number of asteroids: 15,000
Impressive. Anyone know if the objects in the catalogues are all new discoveries or if some might just be objects that are already known?
