Galaxy Zoo

EmailPrintFriendlyBufferShare

NASA needs YOU! Okay…not NASA, but Oxford University. The scientists at Galaxy Zoo need you to help them classify galaxies by their shape and movement. Think that is a tough assignment? Well, if you can tell a spiral from a blob and know the difference between clockwise and counterclockwise then you are their perfect candidate. They have collected tons of pictures of galaxies and need your assistance. The human eye is better at this task than a computer, but Galaxy Zoo only has so many eyes. With just a few minutes worth of time visitors can help these scientists with a very significant project. Thanks to Roy for telling me all about this!
