2014-07-10 13:45:41

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When galaxies first form they are dominated by gas that, over time, lays the foundation for stars. As more stars form the gas becomes locked up in stellar objects and their core remnants, such as white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes. Eventually, the gas will become depleted, leaving behind a cold dead galaxy. This process, however, can look different for varying galaxy types, and astronomers have been looking to...
