From Chicago Tribune:

A $1.8 million Google Global Impact Award will support future development of Zooniverse, the world’s leading citizen science initiative, which is led by Adler Planetarium and Oxford University. Zooniverse will use the money to rebuild its platform to make it easier for more science projects to take place and to help Adler extend the project to local schools and youth and community groups. Since 2007, the initiative has engaged almost 1 million volunteer scientists in projects ranging from classifying animals to searching for exoplanets.
