Galaxy Zoo Red Spiral Paper Submitted
Just a quick post to let you all know that earlier this week I submitted (to MNRAS) a paper on the Galaxy Zoo Red Spirals.
We decided to make this paper available right away on the arXiV, so you can download it here
This paper has been in the works for quite some time (remember the BBC press about Galaxy Zoo red spirals), and I’m happy to have been able to contribute to finishing it and finally getting it submitted. I should particularly mention the work of Sussex/Leiden student, Moein Mosleh who did a lot of the analysis, and of course it’s related to the Galaxy Zoo papers by Steven Bamford and Ramin Skibba who both talk about the environmental dependence of red spirals (ie. where in the universe they like to live).
I promise a post soon with a clearer explanation of what we did in this paper and the exciting results we found.
