Small, Quiet, and Isolated Galaxies: A New Paradigm in Astronomy
In the vast expanse of the universe, galaxies have captivated astronomers for centuries.
These celestial bodies, comprising billions of stars, hold the secrets of our cosmic origins and evolution. Traditional understanding suggests that dwarf galaxies, which are smaller counterparts to their larger counterparts, form around larger galaxies and exhibit vigorous star formation.
However, recent serendipitous discoveries have challenged this conventional wisdom, revealing the existence of small, quiet, and isolated galaxies that defy our current understanding of galactic evolution.
