Below you will find a vast amount of information regarding the topic of Galaxies and Statistics. The information comes from many sources other than the Insitute.

Some of the resources are quite in depth, and it is easy to get lost. It is suggested that you bookmark this page before you examine each source. That way, should you get lost, you can simply use the bookmark to return to the main page.

You may occasionally find a site "under construction," or you may find that a site is completely gone. There is no way to control such situations as the sites are out of Space Telescope Science Institute's control.
