Galaxy Zoo : Morphologies derived from visual inspection

In order to understand the formation and subsequent evolution of galaxies one must first distinguish between the two main morphological classes of massive systems: spirals and earlytype systems. This paper introduces a project, Galaxy Zoo, which provides visual morphological classifiions for nearly one million galaxies, extracted from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS).

Galaxy Zoo Mergers : The Science

Galaxy Zoo users have identified close to 3000 galaxy mergers in the SDSS images. When one considers the number of simulations to be checked for just a single pair of interacting galaxies, it becomes clear that an efficient means of sampling different possible simulation parameters is necessary.
