The Hubble mission invited everyone to find asteroids in the images of the telescope

In 2017, astronomers discovered asteroids in Hubble images located tens and hundreds of millions of them

kilometers from the Solar System, along the characteristic S-shaped tracks formed by them.

To detect more of these objects and calculate their trajectory, scientists asked for the help of volunteers.In order to take part in the project, you need to register and familiarize yourself with the rules of work.Volunteers, in the event of the discovery of a new asteroid, will have to mark their tracks.

The results will be used by the Center.small planets to calculate the orbits, which will help to accurately predict their movement. In addition, the marked data will help train neural networks to recognize similar objects in the images automatically.

Earlier, the International Astronomical Union announcedabout the start of the NameExoWorlds contest for choosing names for several dozen astronomical objects. Residents of 70 countries can take part in it, and Russians are asked to choose a name for the orange dwarf HAT-P-3 and the HAT-P-3b body rotating around it.
