Astronomers at Liverpool John Moores University may have solved the mystery of how spiral galaxies in clusters are transformed over time into smooth disks. Results from a study of galaxy clusters confirm that the slow-motion conditions needed for the transformation are occurring among populations of galaxies falling towards the cluster centre.
