Together with scientists of international partner institutes, Universität Bielefeld, Hamburger Sternwarte, Landessternwarte Tautenburg are asking for the public’s help to find the origin of hundreds of thousands of galaxies that have been discovered by the largest radio telescope ever built: LOFAR. Where do these mysterious objects that extend for thousands of light-years come from? A new citizen science project, LOFAR Radio Galaxy Zoo, gives anyone with a computer the exciting possibility to join the quest to find out where the black holes at the centre of these galaxies are located.
