The folks at the Galaxy Zoo project have been doing sterling work for some time now. Their self-imposed task is to stare at the numerous galaxies that appear in various deep sky surveys while trying to classify them.
Today, the project has paid off in silver dollars as the team announce the discovery of an entirely new type of galaxy cluster.
Although the entire Galaxy Zoo team has been involved, much of the credit must go to Marven Pedbost and Trillean Pomalgu at the University of Brentwood in the UK, who are destined to become legends in their own lunch times.
Take a look at the images in the paper below. They are truly spectacular.
Keep up the good work lads.
