Citizen Scientists may have found two new Earth-like planets, using Planet Hunters

Citizen Scientists may have found two new Earth-like planets, using  Planet Hunters | EngineeringGTT | Scoop.it
Citizen Science made an amazing leap this week. Citizen scientists, using the data supplied by the Kepler public archives, helped to identify two possible planets outside of our solar system, thanks to the browser game Planet Hunters.

Planet Hunters Game Play
Planet Hunters works by using an indirect approach to finding planets, making use of the Transit Method and the Kepler Public Data archive. By observing the light emitted by stars over a 30+ day period, users are asked to look for times when the light curve "dips" in signal. This dip in signal, called a transit feature, suggests that a possible planet in orbit around the star is moving across the path of the star at the time. It takes about three hours for a planet to move across the face of the star during its orbit, long enough for hundreds of light measurements to be made, resulting in dips called transits. Your challenge, as a player, is to identify these dips in light intensity over a course of time for a given star. Also, the size of the planet plays a role, so if a planet is very large, the depth of the transit will be larger than that of a smaller planet, as the larger planet would block more light." Keith Veronese
