There's a brand new astronomical Zooniverse project: Space Warps. We need your help to spot rare and exciting gravitational lenses in the distant Universe.
By looking through images that have never before been seen, our new Space Warps project asks you to help discover these incredibly elusive objects. To take part visit www.spacewarps.org.
Computer algorithms have already scanned the images, but there are likely to be many more space warps that the algorithms have missed and we think that it's only with human help that we'll find them all. We’re really excited about this project and think you’ll be able to make some amazing discoveries through it.
Gravitational lenses help us to answer all kinds of questions, including how many very low mass stars – that aren’t bright enough to detect directly – are lurking in distant galaxies. Read more on the Space Warps blog.
