"Computer users with some time and bandwidth on their hands can help
investigate the cosmos. Using a Web-based application called
Clickworker, users can help classify the land features in the flood of
pictures coming back from the University of Arizona's Mars-orbiting
"HiRISE (High-resolution Imaging Science Experiment) is sending back
so much information that planetary scientists are looking forward to
help classifying the images for a database of Martian land
"Volunteers are asked to train for a few minutes identifying test
images on a HiRISE Web site, "stamping" features on the Mars pictures
with icons for boulders, channels, craters, dust devils, windstreaks,
dunes, gullies, lava, layers, patterned land, polar areas and one
called just plain "interesting."
