Zooniverse Advent – Day 20: It’s All About You – 2

20

 

In an earlier advent calendar post I presented you with results of a study on Zooniverse volunteers showing demographic and another interesting information. In this post I present rather more silly information based on the total number of volunteers.

There are now 1,544,341 registered Zooniverse volunteers all over the world!

If we were to all hold hands in a line, we could reach from Paris to Istanbul (the route of the famous Orient Express), over 2,600km!

Our total mass would be roughly 100,000 tonnes. That’s about the same weight as the largest aircraft carriers in service!

Finally, if we were a country, we would be the 152nd most populous country in the world, just behind Gabon and just ahead of Bahrain.
