Surveying the night sky

Written By: David Zegeye - Jul• 22•13

Today we got to use the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) to gather information for our project. I’ve managed to find several galaxies, stars, and even a few quasars which was surprising. The more galaxies I catalog, the more I wonder if we will ever visit these galaxies.imageimage

    Wouldn’t that be great, to visit another galaxy? There is an old movie called Contact, which was based on a novel the astronomer Carl Sagan wrote. Even though it is fiction about contacting extraterrestrial life for the first time, the science and depiction of telescopes and science was pretty good. There is a scene where a scientist is through space and there depiction if galaxies is beautiful.

    Very impressed with your qso of redshift 6 find!!
