Citizen Science

CosmoQuest invites you to help NASA scientists make maps of scientifically interesting features in our Solar System. You can map craters on the Moon, and trace the splatter of asteroid impacts on Vesta. All these worlds are yours to explore!

Currently we’re rebuilding all our citizen science projects with a new interface. We’ll get you sciencing again as soon as we can.

If it takes a village to raise a child, it will take a global-community to understand the universe.

We are part of that community. You are part of it with us.
