    Research often involves teams of scientists collaborating across continents. Now, using the power of the Internet, non-specialists are participating, too. Citizen Science falls into many categories. A pioneering project was SETI@Home, which has harnessed the idle computing time of millions of participants in the search for extraterrestrial life. Citizen scientists also act as volunteer classifiers of heavenly objects, such as in Galaxy Zoo. They make observations of the natural world, as in The Great Sunflower Project. And they even solve puzzles to design proteins, such as FoldIt. We'll add projects regularly-and please tell us about others you like as well.

    Citizen Science is very good opportunity to General public to participate in real research as amateur scientist. I heard NASA has such projects where citizen can participate in their projects. amateur Scientist are the one's who works in research locations. It's great and enthusiastic opportunity which says that research is collaborative effort.
