The Fireball in the Sky project of SSERVI’s Australian team, led by Principal Investigator Phil Bland at Curtin University, has been selected as a 2016 Eureka Prize Finalist in the category of “Science Communication” for Innovation in Citizen Science.

Presented annually by the Australian Museum, the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes reward excellence in the fields of research & innovation, leadership, science communication and school science.

Fireballs in the Sky is an innovative Australian citizen science program that connects the public with the research of the Desert Fireball Network. This research aims to understand the early workings of the solar system, and Fireballs in the Sky invites people around the world to learn about this science, contributing fireball sightings via a user-friendly app. To date, more than 23,000 people have downloaded the app world-wide and participated in planetary science.

Join them to help track and recover meteorites!
