Galaxy Zoo 2 needs your help!
Fantastic news! Thanks to your hard work over the last few months,
we've reached our initial target of roughly 40 million Galaxy Zoo 2
classifications via http://www.galaxyzoo.org. We're not quite
satisfied yet, though - after looking at the data and introducing more
detailed images we think we need to reach 60 million. Each and every
click helps, and each time you visit the site you're helping us
understand the Universe a little better.
I'm writing this on top of Palomar mountain, home to some of the
world's most famous telescopes, including the one that supplies images
of possible exploding stars to our website at
http://supernova.galaxyzoo.org. Over the next few days, astronomers
are once again standing by in the Canary Islands to follow up on
likely candidates, but first we need your help to identify the best
Our last experiment back in August was a huge success, and so this
time we're looking at a much larger set of data in an attempt to work
out just how common each type of supernova really is. Please take a
few minutes to go to the site, read the new and improved tutorial -
and then start supernova hunting.
Thanks to you, the Galaxy Zoo team have been able to make a whole host
of discoveries about the Universe. To keep up with how we're using
your results, visit the blog at http://www.galaxyzooblog.org .
