Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxies

"How many arms does a spiral galaxy have? Can you spot a galaxy with a 'peanut' bulge? Or how about a galactic merger?

"Answers to these and other strange questions will be provided by ordinary web users who, by working together, have proven to be just as good at galaxy-spotting as professional astronomers.

"The new initiative is a follow-up to the highly successful Galaxy Zoo project that enabled members of the public to take part in astronomy
research online. But whereas the original site only asked members of the public to say whether a galaxy was spiral or elliptical, and which way it was rotating, Galaxy Zoo 2 asks them to delve deeper into 250,000 of the brightest and best galaxies to search for the strange and unusual."
