galaxy zoo 2 - quick update

so the galaxy zoo 2 project has launched - ahead of schedule!!!?? does that ever happen with anything? nice job folks!

anyway, i'm completely mesmerized by the collection of preliminary classifications of galaxy data put together by steven bamford! just take a look at the amazing variety of galaxies that exist in our universe!

below, i show a small sample of galaxies categorized by the public as having five spiral arms...

awesome! to summarize my research in a sentence.... why do all those different types of galaxies have the different colors, shapes, features, and sizes that they do? fantastic.

if you have some extra time, go have fun with the galaxy zoo!
