24 hours in, 76 to go

After the first day of Galaxy Zoo’s 100 hours of astronomy challenge, the response has been excellent. The Zoonometer ™ stands just short of 330,000, so we’re on course and nearly a third of the way there. Of course, the first part is easy, but how will you all do over the long haul?

    Oh great…yes let’s all get on at once and slow everything to a crawl………


  2. Chris says :

    Should be running pretty quickly now…

  3. Gail P. says :

    The clicks are up to almost 337,000 this morning and it isn’t taking long to load, just longer than usual. April 2, 9:20 AM Eastern Daylight Time.

  4. Frank Allison says :

    This fascinates me. I am happy to be part of this project.

  5. arll says :

    Starting to get some rather annoying connection issues here, ~6 second delays from clicking a classification.

  6. hyncharas says :

    Occassionally it takes a long time for the system to process your choices, but it did ease up after a while…

    I don’t know, it could go wither way. If it doesn’t, it will probably be more a matter of the connection issues, however. It it does, it will be a significant step forward.

    We almost have 400,000 clicks!

  9. kev says :

    faster than used to be, still a bit slow.

  10. once, I just had to exit the webpage cause the connection was going so slow... Grr! says :


  11. Daniel H. says :

    Almost at 500,000 — looking good!

  12. Tony says :

    Why are people complaining about the speed of your webb site to respond to clicks? Come on let’s be positive; its a great iniciative let’s celebrate it and the good feeling it gives us all to be a part of it.

    Taking a nap inbetween 2 galaxies…….

  14. brian says :

    intial login sluggish, but once in, things go smoothly. The cause is worth the wait!

  15. kev says :

    The challenge don’t seem to be number of galaxies we classify or people who do it; but whether the servers can handle all the traffic. good lesson for next time’s challenge.

  16. Marcy9 says :

    almost 500,000 clicks, impressive.. I feel like a child in a jewels garden :D:D awesome!

  17. zeus2007 says :

    We’re well underway last count over half the total of clicks! Way go to team.

  18. Dave says :

    don’t mind a few extra seconds to see something no one’s ever seen halfway across the universe…or am I missing the point?
    anyway, just having a blast playing astronomer. thanks G.Z.

  19. kev says :

    hey this zoonometer is really hard to read, can you make it bigger or show the number on it more clearly.

  20. tmbruner says :

    I’m wondering how long after Hubble first correctly classified a galaxy as such that it took to classify a million of them. Sort of a useless factoid I suppose, but would be fun to know.

  21. scibuff says :

    Hey guys, would it be possible to also add a countdown next to the zoonometer so we also know exactly how much is left?
