Michael Aye, Project Scientist for Planet Four.
In the fourth episode of the WeMartians podcast, we explore the growing problem in Planetary Science - there's too much data! With the dawn of the digital age, the volume of data coming back to Earth from planetary missions is increasing exponentially.
We'll talk with Michael Aye, project scientist for Planet Four. Planet Four is a Citizen Science project which lets everyday people participate in planetary science by classifying features on the surface. It helps scientists like Michael get through the massive amounts of imagery from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and lets people like you do science on Mars!
