Want to have a hand in determining the way our children learn about galaxies? Don’t rely on a telescope to decide. Go ahead and start classifying galaxies at Galaxy zoo. The project began back in 2007 when visitors to the website were asked to view and classify galaxies. There were only three categories: ellipticals, mergers and spirals. Suddenly thousands of people began participating, changing the way we see the universe.
