Oh my god so much science! How Galaxies are Classified by Type (Infographic) by Karl Tate, Infographics Artist

Scientists have only searched through a tiny fraction of our galaxy, and with the fast advances in technology, we can expect many more interesting discoveries in the future.     But for now, check out the handy infographic below, courtesy of Space.com, displaying all known types of alien worlds.

A strange new kind of galactic beast has been spotted in the cosmic wilderness. Dubbed "super spirals," these unprecedented galaxies dwarf our own spiral galaxy, the Milky Way, and compete in size and brightness with the largest galaxies in the universe.  Three examples of super spirals are presented here in images taken by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey

Astronomers Discover Colossal 'Super Spiral' Galaxies

There could be as many as 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Here are some of the most fascinating.

Who knew there were so many different types of galaxies. There could be as many as 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Here are some of the most fascinating.

Beyond the Milky Way, there could be as many as 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Here are some of the most fascinating, categorized according to their general type.

How the large hadron collider works: science. How God works: in mysterious ways.

Hubble Sees Elegant Spiral Hiding a Hungry Monster - October 16th 2015 - NGC 4639 is a beautiful example of a type of galaxy known as a barred spiral. It lies over 70 million light-years away in the constellation of Virgo and is one of about 1,500 galaxies that make up the Virgo Cluster.  In this image, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, one can clearly see the bar running through the bright, round core of the galaxy. Bars are found in around....

A team of scientists led by Dr. Patrick Ogle from the California Institute of Technology has discovered a new type of galaxy called a super spiral.

BARRED SPIRAL GALAXY NGC 4639 is a beautiful example of a type of galaxy known as a barred spiral. It lies over 70 million light-years away in the constellation of Virgo and is one of about 1500 galaxies that make up the Virgo Cluster. In this image, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, one can clearly see the bar running through the bright, round core of the galaxy.

The barred spiral galaxy NGC over 70 million light-years away in the constellation of Virgo, one of about 1500 galaxies that make up the Virgo Cluster. NGC 4639 also conceals a massive black hole that is consuming the surrounding gas.
