It is likely that this frenzy eventually will slow to a stop, and that over the next 10 billion years other smaller galaxies may merge with Sparky, causing it to expand and become a mammoth, sedate elliptical galaxy
In the future, NGC 5010 will become an elliptical galaxy
, with no defined features and are spherical in shape.
Moving 1[degrees]20' North, we come to another bright group member, the elliptical galaxy
NGC 3377 (mag 10.
Krupp pointed to M87, a fuzzy elliptical galaxy
50 million light years from Earth with a telltale black hole.
The data shows correlations between the black hole mass and the elliptical galaxy
mass or globular cluster mass.
The Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy
(SagDEG) is one satellite galaxy interacting with the Milky Way.
The halo was found at the centre of the elliptical galaxy
NGC 7052 in the distant constellation of Vulpecula.
6 billion years ago, this monster elliptical galaxy
breaks the previous record-holder by 200 million years.
Keck Observatory in Hawaii, Tran spotted a strong detection of hot hydrogen gas that appeared to arise from a giant elliptical galaxy
Because of fortuitous alignment, the distortion of space-time by the gravitational field of a giant elliptical galaxy
along the line of sight to the quasar acts as a gravitational lens that magnifies the light from the quasar.
The bright, supergiant elliptical galaxy
has a black hole weighing more than 6 billion suns.
Other topics include pulsar wind nebulae, absolute magnitude calibrations for the long period Cepheids, elliptical galaxy
formation, extragalactic globular clusters, diffuse atomic and molecular clouds, and the first results from the Spitzer Space Telescope.
