Err, depends on how detailed the catalogue is -
I've never looked at
SDSS galaxy data, so I'm not sure, nor derivitive catalogues. Some
"catalogy" datasets actually contain a reasonable amount of
information with which to write a few sentences.
Of course. I'm assuming there aren't 2 million galaxies mentioned in
detailed catalogues. I could be wrong though, I haven't actually
looked at them. The number of galaxies we can non-substub articles on
is presumably much smaller than the number of catalogued galaxies.
In the end, what's wrong with an article that contains the sum total
of human knowledge on a subject, even if it's short, as long as it's
verifiable and on a subject matter suitable for an encyclopaedia?
