Link: GalaxyZoo.org

Is this a spiral galaxy, an elliptical galaxy, or a merger of galaxies? My best guess was that it’s a merger, so that’s what I told GalaxyZoo.org, a new crowdsourcing web application for classifying the galaxies that the computer vision algorithms could not. You make an account, run through a quick tutorial on how to recognize the different types of galaxies, and then they set you loose on their database. It’s pretty fun.
