PHANGS-ALMA Survey: NGC3627
Seen here as an ALMA (orange) composite with Hubble Space Telescope (red) data, NGC3627 is one of nearly 100 galaxies observed during a PHANGS census of the nearby Universe. The census revealed that stellar nurseries within galaxies are diverse in both appearance and behavior. This thwarts commonly accepted scientific theory. NGC3627 is an example of asymmetric morphology catalogued by the study.
