Galaxy Zoo 描述
Perform astronomy on your Android phone and contribute to science!
Galaxy Zoo uses gorgeous imagery of hundreds of thousands of galaxies drawn from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope archive. To understand how these galaxies, and our own, formed we need your help to classify them according to their shapes — a task at which your brain is better than even the most advanced computer.
This app needs an internet connection every so often but is designed to work offline by saving galaxy photos to the SD card. When online and logged into Galaxy Zoo with the app, your answers are uploaded to the main system (periodically).
The photos that produced the images in this app were obtained from telescopes (i.e. Hubble) at or near their maximum power. While sometimes small and difficult to discern, these are the best images we have of these incredibly distant galaxies.
