Galaxy Zoo amongst "Top 10 Scientific Endeavours of 2008"

Universe Today recently announced their Top 10 Scientific Endeavours of 2008, as voted for by their readers.

The Galaxy Zoo team were very pleased to find that Galaxy Zoo, and more specifically the discovery of Hanny’s Voorwerp, came in at number 8. This puts us in such fine company as exoplanet imaging, the Phoenix Mars Lander and the Large Hadron Collider!

Universe Today’s previous story on the Voorwerp is available here.
