This is a very rough document, nearly unreadable in its current form. Please polish this and resubmit a good draft. I will work on that revised document. Please revise the history paragraph below by Friday, and then work from there.

Make sure you start with a strong opening paragraph that answers a crisp “What?/So What?” pairing. Then the reader will want to continue. Comments below on the History paragraph give you a sense of what you need to do.]

[Replace with summary] [?] Will this be a proper introduction?
Galaxy Zoo is a citizen science project created by scientists Kevin Schawinski and Chris Lintott that enlists the help of normal people to classify large numbers of possible galaxies. Since its initial inception in 2007 it has expanded to cover more than just the data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.[4] It is now a part of a group of citizen science projects called the Zooniverse, and was recently updated and relaunched. Since its inception it has produced millions of classifications and additionally has contributed the writing of 48 scientific papers.[4] The project continues to gain momentum and users, and also is continually expanding the types of data displayed, making it a versatile forum for classifying large volumes of astronomical data.
