Technological Breakthroughs by Engaging the Crowd

Technological Breakthroughs by Engaging the Crowd:

Rather than discussing another example of engaging people in a virtual environment, conducting science experiments through various simulations, calculations or input from people analyzing data, this new endeavor is trying something even more promising: use input from over 50 radio telescopes – impressive pieces of equipment all by themselves – and integrate them into a single coherent image of a never-before-recorded phenomenon – a black hole.

This just sounds incredibly exciting, and suggests a great trend for scientific research: integrating the work of several scientists into one coherent and impressive result. I really hope to hear more of this research soon !
