+ - Help the Galactic Census

Gr8Apes writes: CNN has a story about scientists needing your help in a galactic census. From the story: They are asking volunteers on the Internet to help classify the galaxies as either elliptical or spiral and note, where possible, in which direction they rotate. Astronomers say computer programs have been unable to reliably classify the star systems. With 10,000 to 20,000 people working to classify the galaxies, the process could take as little as a month. With /. alone, they might be able to do it in a week. Give them a helping hand by signing up at Galaxy Zoo.
