"Starbucks coffee galaxy"? sk4p (talk) 21:51, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. This was on my watchlist too - sorry for missing it... --Kurt Shaped Box (talk) 23:26, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Types of starburst[edit]

Shows "Wolf-Rayet galaxies" as hyperlink to "Wolf-Rayet galaxy" which redirects back to this page. IMO not useful. Can someone educate me about the self linking policy if any? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ConradPino (talkcontribs) 23:47, 3 March 2007 (UTC).

The caption "located 12.2. billion light years away, currently creating 4000 stars per year" seems a little off. I know, I know, relativistic dogma says that this is right now in some frame of reference. Still, when you strike an average of all the mass out to 12 billion light years, we know we're pretty near to at rest in some absolute frame of reference, with nearly all the velocity we see accounted for by Hubble expansion away from us in all directions. So in some practical sense it is fair to say that the light is from 12.2 billion years ago, the distance as we see it. And if you want to go by strict relativity... then what does "currently" mean? This is something that probably could use a style guideline (hmmm, maybe it has one somewhere...) but for now an ad hoc fix seems appropriate. Wnt (talk) 06:58, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Pea galaxies[edit]

I have added a link in the "See also" section to the "Pea galaxy" article as I'm sure that it is relevant to this subject. Richard Nowell (talk) 11:16, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
