Cross Post from the Zooniverse Blog: Galaxy Zoo is Open Source

I just wanted to add a link to a post by Zooniverse Technical Director Arfon Smith over on the Zooniverse blog:

Galaxy Zoo is Open Source 

Please go there to read it.

This development means coders can “fork” their own versions of the Galaxy Zoo code and help (for example) translate the site into other languages, providing another way for people to contribute to the great science coming out of Galaxy Zoo.
