Using the collective observational insights of the general public, citizen science opens the door to unique research with Rubin Observatory and engages the public in cutting edge science. Rubin Observatory is facilitating crowd science projects with a pipeline directly from the Rubin Science Platform to the Zooniverse, a popular platform.
Explore and participate in projects while we await the arrival of Rubin observations and projects in 2025.
For scientists interested in becoming a future Principal Investigator of a project, our pipeline is still under development and we welcome your insights and suggestions.
How to use the pipeline?
We will release a PI Guide with all the details soon - Stay tuned!
Who will be able to become a PI?
Anyone with Rubin data rights
I have an idea now, what can I do to prepare?
