I just found this site tonight. It is a site designed to train, and then put ordinary citizens to work, classifying the backlog of billions of newly photographed and previously unclassified galaxies across the universe. It's FREE. NO cameras or telscopes are required by you; they give you the images. It takes only 15 minutes to learn, and you see some of the most beautiful sights in the UNIVERSE. Here is the site:

Cool, Thorny. I checked out this site but didn't register. It looks like fun if you have more time than I feel I do. I want to send the link to my brother. It is his kind of thing.
