The results are in from the first round of the Space Warps project, which launched in May 2013, and it’s outstanding news! In addition to finding 80 previously published candidate gravitational lenses, our volunteers helped discover 28 new candidate gravitational lenses (and another 30 objects that might turn out be lenses).
