Scientists need you to analyze unseen images of Mars gizmag

With the creation of new citizen science website Planet Four, planetary scientists are turning to the general public for help in analyzing images of the surface of Mars, many of which have never been seen before. It’s hoped that the public’s input will help develop a detailed picture of winds on the planet. The images were captured by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and are limited to Mars’ southern polar region (an effort to keep the workload manageable).
