9.There are two versions of Galaxy Zoo available to the public. This work is reflective of the initial Galaxy Zoo database, found online at zoo1.galaxyzoo.org/. The second version, Galaxy Zoo 2, which uses the same database but provides information to users in a more complex format, is found at www.galaxyzoo.org. Our experience has been that Galaxy Zoo 1 is often easier for novice students to use initially.
