A Zooniverse Project Blog

    I swear we are consistently trying to keep our live hangouts to about 15 minutes. We have so far failed at keeping to time, but hopefully also succeeded in the sense that we only run over because there’s so much to discuss. We had a number of good questions from Twitter, Facebook and the blog […]

    Experience Science from Beginning to End! Classify, Analyze, Discuss, and Collaboatively Write an Article! Galaxy Zoo and other Zooniverse projects have given thousands the opportunity to contribute to scientific research.  It’s time to take the role of volunteers to the next level.  For the next two months*, this new Galaxy Zoo Quench project provides the […]

    It was amazing how quickly the new Quench classifications were completed. We posted them on Friday and you were already done by Sunday morning. Wow, that’s awesome! This means we can turn our full attention to making sense of the data. And we need your help! In Part 1 of this How-To-Guide to data analysis within Quench, […]

    I’m very happy to be posting again to the How-To-Guide. We’ve made a number of updates to Quench data and Quench Tools. Before I launch into Part 3 of the Guide, here are the recent updates: The classification results for the 57 control galaxies that needed replacements have been uploaded into Quench Tools. We’ve applied […]

    This week much of the team has been in Sydney, Australia, for the Evolutionary Paths In Galaxy Morphology conference. It’s a meeting centered largely around Galaxy Zoo, but it’s more generally about galaxy evolution, and how Galaxy Zoo fits into our overall (ever unfolding) picture of galaxy evolution. The first talk of the conference was […]

    Over the years the public has seen more than a million galaxies via Galaxy Zoo, and nearly all of them had something in common: we tried to get as close as possible to showing you what the galaxy would actually look like with the naked eye if you were able to see them with the […]

    UV and MIR both probe star formation in different ways, so they look a bit similar.vroojeSome of the darkening in an optical image is because of dust; some is because there just aren't as many stars. The infrared helps us tell one from the other.A galaxy at z = 0.01 in SDSS, redshifted to three further distances.UV and MIR both probe star formation in different ways, so they look a bit similar.vroojeSome of the darkening in an optical image is because of dust; some is because there just aren't as many stars.

    I’ve used some statistical tools to analyze the spatial distribution of Galaxy Zoo galaxies and to see whether we find galaxies with particular classifications in more dense environments or less dense ones. By “environment” I’m referring to the kinds of regions that these galaxies tend to be found: for example, galaxies in dense environments are […]

    The Universe is pretty huge, and to understand it we need to collect vast amounts of data. The Hubble Telescope is just one of many telescopes collecting data from the Universe. Hubble alone produces 17.5 GB of raw science data each week. That means since its launch to low earth orbit in April 1990, it’s […]
