Join the Galaxy Zoo

Galaxy Zoo – the project which harnesses the power of the Internet – and your brain – to classify a million galaxies.

This site is interesting, just sign up and pass the simple test and you will be contributing to scientific research. There is no any software on this world  that can scan and tell which type of the galaxy is. The only thing which can do the analyses better is the human mind.

I’m part of this, and can tell its interesting not only helping but you will also learn the types of Galaxy and how to describe them when using your own telescope.

The screen shot below shows one of the Sky objects which needs to be classified. notice its not easy for the the computer itself to classify the picture. In this case the picture below shows a Clockwise Spiral galaxy. Its simple just look, think and hit the correct button. 

You will find this site interesting in your free times
