    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves.

    Details: Galaxy Zoo

    market download Galaxy Zoo
    To understand how galaxies have formed, astronomers need your help to classify them according to their shapes. If you're quick, you may even be the first person to see the galaxies you're asked to classify. Images come from telescopes including Hubble and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

    This app caches several subjects locally so you can classify even while offline and have the classifications automatically uploaded later.

    This is an official Zooniverse app. To learn more about the Galaxy Zoo project and our science, visit http://www.galaxyzoo.org/
