Heard about this from a friend a few minutes ago - so did the trial and then logged in. The test objects are all much easier to discern than the "live" images - but seems a useful project.

Is there a fail safe for this??

I mean, if I get a spiral or eliptical wrong, is there someone somewhere who will pick it up??? Wouldn't want to mess up on my first day in space.

My guess is that they are employing some redundancy, or that they figure that the biases will be random. As they say on the page, don't fret it too much.

It could potentially be a voting system, multiple people get shown the same image, if 9/10 says its anti-clockwise then it gets classified as such...

Really cool site though!
