EVE online gaming platform Project Discovery initiative is back at full swing. After it helped scientists about how the human cells and how exoplanets came into existence, the data set of the players would now support the scientists to understand the coronavirus.
The game is quite popular among the youth and the teen.
Thousands of players around the world are playing the game through online gaming platform.
When pilots get tired from the gaming of the favorite game, they can switch to a simple minigame that mines data about the human cells.
