The Data

All the data used by the machine learning system to produce the categorisations and the galaxy images for this site are from the Hubble Space Telescope. You can download the files from the Space Telescope Science Insitute: STScI: CANDELS

If you are interested in learning how to produce images from the Hubble Space Telescope data then check back in a couple of weeks. I'll add detailed instructions. To a layperson the astronomy acronyms and language used at the STScI site are daunting, but once you know a few simple terms and have the detailed steps at hand then it is a fairly straightforward process.
