Bora showed me something interesting the other day - a website where humans (like us) can help NASA classify galaxies according to their shape. Computers might be better at chess, but we know our galaxies a lot better! So far...

Here's the website:-

http://www.galaxyzoo.org/

Apparently, you might be the first person to see some of these images!

I love it! Thanks so much for that link.

I've just been trying the examples on their home page. It asks you a series of questions about the object you are viewing. It is trickier than I expected!

The link still seems to work all right for me, and leads to the site Athamos described. So I'd say it is still going, yes.

Sorry - I see what you mean now. The link redirects to a new URL, namely https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/zoo ... alaxy-zoo/

However, the content still seems to be as described.
