Submission + - Crowdsourcing Mars Images (

alancronin writes: In conjunction with BBC's recent astronomy television program: Stargazing Live comes a citizen science project to analyze images of Mars. Zooniverse has setup a site that allows people to explore the surface of Mars in incredible detail with pictures taken from the HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. HiRISE can image Mars with resolutions of 0.3 m/pixel (about 1 foot), resolving objects below a meter across.
