Talking about Galaxy Zoo on the Jodcast

I talk about Galaxy Zoo (specifically the red spirals and the results we had on bars in spirals) in the May 2011 Extra Edition of the Jodcast. I start talking about Galaxy Zoo about 6 minutes in. I linked just my interview below.


Hope you enjoy it, Karen.

One response to “Talking about Galaxy Zoo on the Jodcast”

  1. Kirk Sorensen says :

    My studies in cosmology have led to a question you may be able to help me with based on the data from the 3-D map of the Universe. Has someone done a statistical study on the angular orientation of star systems and galaxies? I am studying the potential for angular momentum remaining from the Big Bang as conveyed with a space-angular momentum brane. With all the merging since that time, there will be a distribution of orientations. I am hoping to find a non-random skew to the data. Thanks.
