In yet another splendid example of harnessing the power of the masses, Galaxy Zoo seeks help in categorizing galaxies photographed automatically during a large-scale sky survey.

This kind of work baffles a computer and can be rather tedious for people, so doling out the work to the teeming millions – where everyone and anyone can do just a little as time and desire allow – aggregates to a result greater than the sum of the parts.

Log on, take a short quiz to check your abilities, and then proceed to helping the endeavour.

By the way, in doing this work you are quite likely to see some nice galactic formations that no human has ever seen before.
