APOD: The Densest Galaxy (2013 Oct 04) Credit: NASA, ESA, Hubble Heritage (STScI/AURA), Jay Strader (Michigan St. Univ.) et al. http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap131004.html Explanation: The bright core and outer reaches of giant elliptical galaxy M60 (NGC 4649) loom large at the upper left of this sharp close-up from the Hubble Space Telescope. Some 54 million light-years away and 120,000 light-years across, M60 is one of the largest galaxies in the nearby Virgo Cluster. In cosmic contrast, the small, round smudge at picture center is now recognized as an ultra-compact dwarf galaxy. Cataloged as M60-UCD1, it may well be the densest galaxy in the nearby universe. Concentrating half of its total mass of 200 million suns into a radius of only 80 light-years, stars in the inner regions of M60-UCD1 are on average 25 times closer together than in planet Earth's neighborhood of the Milky Way. Exploring the nature of M60-UCD1, astronomers are trying to determine if ultra-compact dwarf galaxies are the central remnants of larger galaxies that have been tidally stripped by gravitatonal encounters, or evolved as massive globular star clusters. Recently discovered, a bright X-ray source seen at its center could be due to a supermassive black hole. If so, that would favor a remnant galaxy origin for M60-UCD1. http://heritage.stsci.edu/2012/38/ http://hubblesite.org/news/2012/38 http://spacetelescope.org/news/heic1213/ http://hubblesite.org/news/2013/40 http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2013/m60/ http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/news/2013/su201336.html http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/2041-8205/775/1/L6 http://arxiv.org/abs/1307.7707 Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=131004 #APOD
