  1. This is very interesting indeed. It shows that the general public can help identify new galaxies by using this public database. By giving the database public access, members of the society can identify and contribute to the scientific community in the comfort of their home – avoiding the criticism that they might get if they had tried to do the same identifying with other members of society or in the company of other scientists.

  2. I agree with your comment on how science with the support of the public will be very successful. This identification of the green blob is interesting to me as it shows that the viewing of this image has supported further testing and investigations that may lead to new discoveries for science. By the way, the galaxy zoo was pretty fun.
