    Users can classify as many galaxies as they like

    An online initiative which asks members of the public to classify galaxies recorded unprecedented traffic in its first 48 hours.

    Co-founder Dr Chris Lintott said the website had been getting 12 clicks per second in its first two days.

    He said members of the public had answered some two million questions about galaxies in the database during that same period.
