Dwarf Spiral Galaxies

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Astronomers have found the missing link in galaxy evolution and thereby have developed another piece of evidence for big bang creation models. Big bang models predict that almost all dwarf spiral galaxies will quickly evolve into dwarf elliptical galaxies. The discovery of two dwarf galaxies with a large central bulge and a faint, broad spiral structure means that astronomers have found a dwarf spiral galaxies just before they turns into dwarf elliptical galaxies. This confirmation helps establish the biblical cosmic creation model.
