Further than the eye can see

Anyone who looks at the universe in awe and amazement, might find it interesting to check this out.  Scientists are trying to analyze and categorize millions of images that are being sent back to Earth from outer space.  There are images of galaxies,  and strange unidentified and mysterious objects, some older, some bigger, some smaller than our own Milky Way Galaxy.

The task is so big that anyone with a computer and a good eye is invited to participate in the ongoing research by helping to categorize the shapes and various characteristics of the galaxies.  

There is even a chance to discover something completely new.  If you do, it gets named after the finder.
