Want to know more about Project Discovery and how to contribute to real world science via EVE Online? Check out this newly released video and get to analyzing for in-game rewards and the feelsgoodman benefit of helping the scientific search for planets beyond our solar system!
Also, three members from the Project Discovery team exoplanets will be hosting an AMA (ask me anything) on /r/science tomorrow, Thursday 21st, beginning at 2pm UTC. Wayne Gould (astronomer at the Geneva Observatory), Attila Szantner (founder and CEO of Massively Multiplayer Online Science), and CCP’s Hjalti Leifsson will be on hand for a couple hours to answer questions about the search for exoplanets, the science behind it, integrating citizen science into video games, and the future of crowdsourcing science.
If you are one of the EVE players who have already submitted one of over 38.3 million player classifications of the CoRoT telescope’s light data (peaking at 88,000 per hour!!), you might want to check it out or ask some on-topic questions about Project Discovery-Exoplanets.
A reminder though, that while we're sure you want to know why your favorite ship isn’t getting buffed, EVE game design questions won’t be covered by this particular group.
