JHU Scientist Crowdsources Rocks Harboring Earthly “Extraterrestrials”

Crowdsourcing created an online photography archive, financed a British rock band’s tour and advanced a search for intelligent life on other planets. Now a biologist is hoping the approach can help her find rocks. But not just any rocks.
