Galaxy Zoo: the font of galactic knowledge

Earlier, I mentioned GalaxyZoo, the crowdsourced galaxy categorisation site, what I forgot to mention is the fact that there are galaxies to match every letter of the alphabet, which means there is a truly galactic font out there and the site’s creators have developed an app to let you write your own message in galacticalligraphy:

Obviously, first thing I wrote was a rude word, but I deleted that quickly and wrote “sciencebase” instead ;-) Click the graphic and it takes you to my page and then you can write a new message, such as “Hello World” or perhaps more appropriately, “Hello Worlds“. Have fun and do have a go on GalaxyZoo you might spot an entirely new galactic character.
