Become a Galaxy Hunter!
Participate in Astronomical Research!
- Do you like looking at really great pictures of galaxies?
- Do you want to participate in real astronomical research?
- Do you want to see galaxies that NO ONE has ever seen before?
- Do you want to do all of this for FREE and from your home computer?
Now you can be an Astronomer!
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey is a robotic telescope that takes millions of pictures of distant galaxies.
Galaxy Zoo needs your help to classify them!
When you go to GalaxyZoo.org, you take a 10 minute introduction that teaches you how to classify galaxies, and then you start right away!
You can create your own free account that keeps track of how many galaxies you have classified.
All this classification helps astronomers to further understand the universe and publish scientific papers!
