The Mystery of Superthin Galaxies – Too thin or too beautiful?
Stefan Kautsch (Nova Southeastern University), Oct 14
Superthin galaxies are slowly star-forming disk galaxies with very thin and low-density stellar disks. It is unknown how these objects survived the violent merging history of the universe. Their dark-matter halos could provide some answers. Thus, I present new observations which may help to establish them as a diverse class of extragalactic objects.
