Planet Four needs your help to research Mars! The citizen science project is enlisting everyday folks to help planetary scientists identify and measure features on the surface of Mars. Why? This region of Mars is quite unknown, and by tracking and identifying these marks, scientists will gain a greater understanding of Mars’ climate and how the planet functions.
Planet Four is a project of Zooniverse, a platform for diverse citizen science projects ranging from space and climate to nature and biology.  If you are interested in being an integral part of scientific discoveries, then create an account and choose from a variety of science projects that need your help.  [Source: Planet Four]
