Stargazing Spike

To continue the graph theme for this week I have got for you the most impressive classification rate we have ever seen at the Zooniverse, and most likely the highest rate in the history of citizen science! It peaked at over one million classifications in an hour on the Space Warps project during the evening of January 7th, when the project was featured as part of BBC’s Stargazing Live television show. Most of our projects take days, weeks or even months to achieve that number of classifications! That’s the Cox Effect for you šŸ˜‰
