>Citizen science opportunities keep cropping up. Now you can help NASA find exoplanets!

>Here's a new citizen science opportunity: Identify galaxy interactions at Galaxy Cruise.

>Are you an astronomy buff with a camera-equipped telescope? Participate in a historic experiment in April 2020! See details at http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Seeing_stars_in_3D_The_New_Horizons_Parallax_Program_999.html.

>Actively participate in space exploration from the comfort of home! NASA is asking for citizen help in identifying the best location for the OSIRIS-REx probe to grab a sample from the asteroid Bennu. Read details at Space.com.

>More information relevant to Bucket List Item 60: http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/In_Solar_Systems_Symphony_Earths_Magnetic_Field_Drops_the_Beat_999.html

>Bucket List Item 60: This isn't actually a sound of space, but it's a beautiful piece of music created by scanning a picture of a Martian sunrise from left to right, pixel by pixel, looking at brightness and color information and combining them with terrain elevation. Researchers then used algorithms to assign each element a specific pitch and melody. Maybe it really belongs with Bucket List Item 67.

>The National Space Society is looking for Space Ambassadors to give presentations informing people and stimulating interest in human space exploration and settlement. Get information at the Space Ambassadors website.

>Another new opportunity in citizen science: Turn your smartphone into a cosmic ray detector and help gather data about ultra-high energy cosmic rays. Register and download the app at https://crayfis.io/. Read more about the project there and at SpaceDaily.com.

>Several citizen science activities are listed in The Complete Space Buff's Bucket List. Here's a new one from NASA. Help identify geologic features on Earth from photos taken by ISS astronauts. This information may help scientists track and understand our planet's gradual changes.
Space Bucket List
Space author Loretta Hall
New Space Activities
New Ideas for Space Things to Do
Since The Complete Space Buff's Bucket List was published in January 2016, I continue to come across new ideas. If there's something on the original list you don't want to do, substitute one of these!

Check back from time to time, because I keep finding new possibilities for space enthusiasts.

"It's hard to get space out of space people. Once you get all these space people together, they want to do space things."
