    you can help scientists by classifying what types galaxies are, they have 250,000 of them to do that they have captured by robotic telescopes. It looks really cool

    Cool this has been going for a while now - wasn't sure it was still running - it has picked up some very interesting things and some people who have found them have had phenomena named after them !!!

    I was chating to the guy who set it up and suggested he should let people neame them as a source of revenue but he wasn't keen - He is Chris Lintott from the Sky at night, its fantastic to be looking at galaxies that maybe noone else has ever looked at before
