Astronomy Rewind

The newly launched NASA-funded project called Astronomy Rewind calls on people to uncover old, lost cosmic images to create a public database. Hopefully, this will allow for astronomers to discover a great deal more about our galaxy, and shed extra light on science history. Hosted by Zooniverse (a citizen-science platform that relies on one million volunteers), the project will certainly be interesting—even if no new phenomena is found—since observations published in journals before the mid ’90s are rarely in online databases.
