This SDSS project tells the user about the history and importance of sky surveys. The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) is not the first effort that mankind has made to map the night sky. Using different instrumentes like telescopes (Palomar Sky Survey, POSS), infrared detectors (2 Micron All Sky Survey, 2MASS) and X-ray detectors (Röntgen Satellite, ROSAT), amongst others, astronomers have been able to not only been able to find objects in our universe, but also study their properties according to the emission dected. The website also challenges the user to compare images from different surveys, including the SDSS, and conclude about their efficiency.
