4th Blog Post: Visual Classification of Galaxies

I have spent most of this week preparing for the presentation that I will be giving about the project on Tuesday, as well as writing a report about the career path of Ana Afonso, a PhD student in the XGAL group and reading and presenting a paper about the importance of tides for life on exoplanets.

I also attempted to analyse the effects of increasing the vote threshold on the Galaxy Zoo data to see if the patterns spotted last week held for galaxies that had more than 90% of the vote for being mergers, but found that there were so few of these galaxies that no pattern could be discerned.

I apologise for this post being so short!
