PHANGS-ALMA Survey: NGC3351
While conducting a census of nearly 100 galaxies in the nearby Universe, the PHANGS survey observed NGC3351, a galaxy featuring an outer ring and bar morphology. Prior to the study, scientists believed that all, or most stellar nurseries, looked and behaved the same. The study revealed that stellar nurseries are actually characterized by extraordinary diversity. NGC3351 is shown here as an ALMA (orange) composite with Hubble Space Telescope (red) data.
