Tutorial

The galaxies are easy to classify and we’ll show you how in a short tutorial that will explain what you need to look for.

Your classifications will help the scientists understand the type of galaxy you are looking at, and what stage it’s at in its evolution.

You will also help the researchers estimate how much light is being emitted from the galaxy by fitting a ring around the galaxy’s edge. This can be used to work out lots of properties of the galaxy, like how many stars it has and how fast it is forming new stars
