Astronomers from the Moscow state University has compiled a directory of 800 thousand galaxies

There are many directories, which contain information about various heavenly bodies, galaxies and stars. They regularly use, but they are not voluminous, informative and accurate, so astronomers often not enough information there, forcing them to seek other sources. This is what prompted astronomers from MSU and France to create a database.

«For each galaxy we extracted from the existing related small picture which shows how the galaxy looks like in different wavelengths, and this gives us material for further research. A complete picture of the evolution of the Universe over the last seven billion years can be seen in ten years, when they completed major reviews of DESI type, where it is planned to obtain spectra for 25-30 million objects», — quotes RIA «news» Igor Chilingaryan from the State astronomical Institute of Moscow state University.

The New base is called , and it is created with the help of volunteers. The website for the project was written by experts, not connected with astronomy, the algorithms search through the database was done by the programmers of the major IT companies.

Now the database is listed 800 thousand galaxies, the developers still decided to stay, but in the future they plan to expand the directory, not only adding new galaxies, but also to increase the amount of useful information available on existing objects.
