The universe is filled with galaxies with an amazing variety of sizes and shapes. One of the biggest challenges for astronomers working in this field is to understand how all these types relate to each other in the background of an expanding universe. Karen Masters from the University of Portsmouth and Project Scientist for the Galaxy Zoo Citizen Science programme will discuss how the public can help classify galaxies and the real science being done with their findings.
