Day 6: It’s A New Week

If there were a phrase that could sum up my day today, it would be “copy and paste”. That is essentially what I did today. I have been collecting data on the exact orientation in the sky of 236 different galaxies using this program called WISE. Basically, I plug in the galaxy’s coordinates, check off what I want to know, and the program gives me the information, in the form of a chart. I have found this chart very handy, because after I am given the data I have to copy and paste it into an excel document, so that it’s all in one place. The only bad thing is that you can only do one galaxy at a time, so it is still a work in progress, even after a whole days work. Right now I am on galaxy 180, so the end is in sight!
