Galaxy Zoo: Hubble is now available in German! The likes of Johannes Kepler, Heinrich Olbers, Joseph von Fraunhofer and Max Planck would all no doubt be very pleased, as we’re sure they would have loved Galaxy Zoo!*
German is one of the most important cultural languages in the world. Many famous figures, such as Beethoven, Freud, Goethe, Mozart and Einstein spoke and wrote in German. It is the language of around 100 million people worldwide, not just in Germany, but in Austria, a large part of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the South Tyrol region of Italy, parts of Belgium, parts of Romania and in the Alsace region of France.
Galaxy Zoo: Hubble is proud to finally be available in German and here at Zooniverse HQ, we’re very grateful to our friends at the Center for Astronomy Education and Outreach in Heidelberg, who helped us make it happen. Since Galaxy Zoo began, German speakers have provided millions of clicks for the project and we hope that this will encourage them even more.
