"Welcome to GalaxyZoo , the project which harnesses the power of the internet - and your brain - to classify a million galaxies. By taking part, you'll not only be contributing to scientific research, but you'll view parts of the Universe that literally no-one has ever seen before and get a sense of the glorious diversity of galaxies that pepper the sky.
Why do we need you?
The simple answer is that the human brain is much better at recognizing patterns than a computer can ever be. Any computer program we write to sort our galaxies into categories would do a reasonable job, but it would also inevitably throw out the unusual, the weird and the wonderful. To rescue these interesting systems which have a story to tell, we need you."
All you have to do is sort galaxies into spiral (rotating clockwise or counter-clockwise) or elliptical ones.
Right now I jsut have the problem that I always get an error message once I get to the second or third trial picture. Uncool
A repository for everything else. Introductions, off-topic threads, testing and so on. When in doubt, post it here.
