About

This pww3hjczu_400x400age is about my view of the world and the universe. I live in Germany and am an astronomy enthusiast. I was a moderator of the Milky Way Project. So my posts are mostly about astronomy themes.

I hope you enjoy my blog.

DITOs #CitSciStories 3: “My transition and me being a citizen scientist are strangely connected”

I did classify an image at exoplanet expolrers that helped to discover a 5-planet system, called K2-138 (link to exoplanet explorers website). You can find the paper here: The K2-138 System: A Near-resonant Chain of Five Sub-Neptune Planets Discovered by Citizen Scientists
You can also find the animation including all 5 planets here K2-138 Sytem. I am not an co-author of the paper because I was not the first to classfy the planet. Nevertheless it made me proud to be able to help scientist to discover this special planetary system.
