Why look for artifacts?

    Why do they ask us to select artifacts? is it just to help filter out non-asteroid things? If so, how does it help?

    It helps to improve the software used to detect moving objects in images. By "confirming" which objects are artifacts and which are real, the software can "learn" a better parametrization for how to distinguish artifacts from real objects for future data analysis
