This discovery is part of was set up of Observations Made by Hubbleaims to examine more closely “Zoo Gems“, A Constellation series selected for their particular interest Galaxy Zoo project. This includes the citizen science program Hundreds of thousands of volunteers In classification Galaxies, makes it easier Thus, the Analysis of Vast volumes of data generated by robotic telescopes. Collective participation was introduced A variety of constellationsSome of it They have never studied before.

A similar effort Radio Galaxy Zoo: LOFARIt uses this massive collaboration method to identify Supermassive black holes Inside Galaxies far away. Findings emerging from these projects highlight the importance of power Crowdsourcing In Investigation Astronomy.

For a more detailed look at these fascinating systems, The Advanced camera for Surveys Dell Hubble Conducted follow-up observations of the most important items identified in both Galaxy Zoo In parallel with that Radio astronomy. Public actively participated in this work and contributed 18 thousand votes to select the objectives of these observations.
