EAGLE galaxies have landed on Galaxy Zoo

Eagle galaxies in Galaxy Zoo

Now you can help classifying simulated galaxies from the EAGLE project on the citizen' science platform Galaxy Zoo. EAGLE was run on a supercomputer using 4000 computer processors simultaneously over 4 months to generate a model universe by a large group of researchers including Dr. Rob Crain and Dr. Jaime Salcido from ARI. The simulated images that you can classify in Galaxy Zoo are going to be used by ARI's researcher Dr. Violeta Gonzalez-Perez and collaborators to explore how individual galaxies take their shape in a sophisticated simulated universe. For further information on the project, visit this Galaxy Zoo blog post.
