Written in the Stars (or Galaxies)
Posted: October 5, 2012

Have you heard the phrase, “Our fate is written in the stars?”  I’m not sure about my fate, but apparently my name is, and so is yours!

Since July 2007, a group of volunteers for Galaxy Zoo  have been classifying billions of galaxies for scientific use.   While doing this, the volunteers noticed some of the galaxies resemble the alphabet. 

That led to a typestyle created by Steven Bamford, which was released earlier this year and revamped more recently.  Try your hand at the galaxy typestyle (or type your name).

Until then, I think I want to see my name written in the stars…

There, done!
