PHANGS-ALMA Survey: NGC1385
During a survey of nearly 100 galaxies in the nearby Universe, the PHANGS team observed NGC1385, a galaxy featuring pure flocculent disk morphology. The survey concluded that contrary to accepted scientific theory, not all stellar nurseries look or act the same. NG1385 is shown here as an ALMA (orange) composite with Hubble Space Telescope (red) data.
