Let's embark on a journey to unlock the secrets of galaxies.
 

GALAXY CRUISE is a Citizen Astronomy (Citizen Science) project in which ordinary people and scientists come together to explore galaxies. In this spectacular space journey, you will decipher the history of galaxies from clues captured by a state-of-the-art instrument. Let's begin.

 
 
 
Features of GALAXY CRUISE
1. Learn the basic knowledge
Before your departure, you should familiarize yourself with the basic knowledge required for this journey. By completing a simple training program consisting of three lessons, you'll earn your certificate as a Citizen Astronomer. Then you'll be ready to start using real data from the telescope. So please relax and enjoy the program.
 
 
2. Join as a citizen astronomer
In GALAXY CRUISE, you will work together with professional scientists to conduct research. Whether you are at home or on the go, anyone who has registered can participate in the project from a PC or tablet. Your contribution as a Citizen Astronomer is the driving force behind this spectacular voyage.
 
 
3. Explore the vast universe
You can freely explore the vast Universe and contribute to the classification of galaxies using the intuitive, game-like interface. The collected data will then be analyzed by scientists. The path you traveled and your galaxy classification activities will be recorded. You can check your history at any time by going to your Voyage Log.
