Open Science Tracker, Seeking $1,000

People already use BitTorrent to transfer popular media and large data files. With a bit of focus, we can use that same power to share scientific data and knowledge. Open Science Tracker is a Kickstarter project looking to get scientific data into the hands of anyone with an internet connection. By expanding the access to real data, we would be able to inspire new generations of scientists or allow hobbyists to try to tackle some of the world’s most difficult problems.
