Power to the People: How Citizen Science is Finding New Worlds

This is my science article which is mainly based on the citizen science project Planet Hunters which sees users identify transits of stars, which could potentially indicate the presence of a planet. Also includes details on "Tabby's Star" which has seen its intensity dip by over 15% (Jupiter would cause a 1% dip on the Sun) which to the suggestion of Dyson Spheres or huge gas clouds. The only criticism (which I agree with) is that the figures are a bit boring, but I didn't know how 'fun' this project was meant to be.
