At work we posted an interesting package of stories about citizen scientists Did you know anyone can help NASA scientists with real research? Check it out: solarsystem.nasa.gov/citizenscience . Some of my sketchbook page pieces are based on citizen science projects.
We even included a few profiles of people who made the leap from the amateur community to working at NASA, and they picked me for one of them: https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/ne…/400/the-ride-of-a-lifetime/
I’m one fortunate SOB.
