California Academy of Sciences: Galaxy Zoo-keeper Training

Did you know there are around 100 million galaxies in our observable Universe?

With new telescope technology helping to generate more images of these galaxies than could ever be seen and understood by astronomers, a creative solution was needed. You might think, why can’t a computer to do it? Sounds good, but it turns out people are way better than computers analyzing these types of images and it is actually really fun to see pictures of our Universe that have never been seen before! Join Galaxy Zoo and work with astronomers to study galaxies, understand how galaxies around us formed and what their stories can tell us about the past, present and future of our Universe.
