Happy 2nd Birthday, Radio Galaxy Zoo!
Happy 2nd birthday to Radio Galaxy Zoo!
On Radio Galaxy Zoo’s 2nd birthday, we wish to thank you all for achieving more than 1.42 million classifications (~57.2 years of work)! That is an extra 20 years of classifications just in the last year. We are nearly at the halfway mark now so we are cheering you all on for the great effort and dedication that many of you have shown.
So what has the science team done in the last year with your classifications? Our first refereed paper has been published.
Anna Kapinska’s HyMoRS paper has been submitted for publication and we have another 3 papers on the sidelines in preparation and awaiting submission in the next few months.
And we have also submitted several proposals to conduct follow-up observations of the many interesting systems that you all have found!
Thank you all very much for your support again. We are most grateful for your help thus far. However, we still have more than half of our sample to classify. So we are seeking your help in the coming days, months & year to complete this monumental task.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday period and a great upcoming year!
Ivy, Julie & RGZ team
