According to the UAE Future Observatory, the project allows NASA scientists to focus their efforts instead of sorting huge amounts of data on their own, and algorithms trained to discover exoplanets are usually used in carrying out this type of work, but human judgment is necessary in this case.
“Automated methods of processing TS data sometimes fail to distinguish between exoplanets and some other seemingly similar objects, and the human eye is very good at distinguishing these deceptive objects,” said Veselin Kostov, a NASA researcher leading the Planet Patrol project, in a press release. To citizen scientists to help us distinguish between real planets and other bodies. ”
Planet Patrol is not the only citizen science project that aims to sort TES data for signs of exoplanets. Planet Hunters TS is working towards the same goal, but it analyzes the data in a different way.
“We all swim in the same sea of data, but we are looking at it in different ways,” NASA science official Mark Kushner said in the press release.
