Becoming an intergalatic explorer 2 – Visit the zoo


I’m sure you’ll remember my last post about becoming an intergalactic explorer, well now there’s a new project to help you explore the cosmos but in a similar way to the last one.

The project is:
http://www.galaxyzoo.org/

You’ll be rummaging through the Slaon Digital sky survey – a huge database of galactic images. Your mission is to find the images that look like galaxies then pick a category for them. Most of these images haven’t been seen by anyone else.

THe image above is an example. it looks pretty good, and I’ve chosen an anti-clockwise spiral. (I hope you agree…)

Have fun and find something interesting…

UPDATE:
Here’s a few nice looking galaxies I’ve come across:
One, two, three and four.
