Galaxy Zoo

January 1st, 2007 - January 1st, 2007 | PROJECT

Galaxy Zoo invites the public to help us explore the Universe by classifying galaxies according to their shape. Galaxy Zoo has already produced ten published or submitted research projects, and we've been successful in getting some of the world's largest telescopes - including Hubble - to follow up on unusual objects identified by Galaxy Zoo users. The site also has an active forum and blog for discussing the project and citizen science in general.
