    Why do galaxies gather in clusters? If the Universe is expanding, how can galaxies cluster? How are galaxy clusters structured and how do we know they contain dark matter? What component of galaxy clusters contains the most mass? Why is the gas in galaxy clusters so hot? Jan 17,  · Man can be defined between the two pillars of discovering and imposing his will on the unknown. Genesis 28 says “ be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.” Expanding into unknown lands and subduing them is a critical part of our nature. Can we subdue the entire Universe? I doubt it. Can we subdue our own nature? That’s what Elliptical Galaxies attempts to find out.

Nearly all large galaxies are thought to also contain. Galaxies at this extreme may have no clear spiral arm structure, resulting in a lens-like appearance (they are sometimes referred to as lenticular galaxies).

These galaxies seem to share as many properties with elliptical galaxies as they do with spiral galaxies. At the other extreme, the central bulge is small and the arms are loosely wound.
