Quotes

"Anyone can help," Alejandro Sanchez, a Ph D candidate at UCM, said in a release . "in fact, without the help of citizens, it is almost impossible to use these images scientifically. algorithms cannot distinguish between stars, cities, and other objects, such as the moon. humans are much more efficient for complex image analysis."
"we don't know which direction the astronaut pointed the camera, only where the station was at the time the image was taken" researcher Alejandro Sanchez told CNN
"Madrid is the capitalcapital of Spain, a country facing a major economic crisis," said Sanchez. "it is much brighter in astronaut images than berlin, the capital of germany, the country with the healthiest economy in europe. perhaps that is an indication that germany more efficiently manages its resources. the images can provide evidence and data to verify that."
