Astronomer Thomas Zolotor found a rock formation on Mars that looks like a duck swimming in water. Thomas Zolotor has given a class of galaxies the term FHB which stands for Faint Hubble Blob. This class of galaxies are from the Hubble telescope using the CANDELS survey. The FHB galaxies class are very faint and looks like blobs. They are from the farthest distance of the universe yet. This enables CANDELS to detect and measure objects much farther out in space and nearer to the Big Bang than before. The present day Galaxy Zoo combines new imaging from Sloan, giving us our best ever view of the local Universe, with the most distant images yet from Hubble's CANDELS survey. The CANDELS survey makes use of the new Wide Field Camera 3 - installed during the final shuttle mission to Hubble - to take ultra-deep images of the Universe, so who knows what's out there to be found? The CANDELS survey from the Hubble telescope allows us to look deeper into the universe’s past than ever before,” said Kevin Schawinski, astronomer and Galaxy Zoo team member from ETH Zurich in Switzerland.
