HI Nearby Galaxy Survey (THINGS)
This image shows an HI composite of all galaxies observed as part of The HI Nearby Galaxy Survey (THINGS). All galaxies are shown on the same physical scale and the color indicates HI surface brightness; all galaxies have been observed using the same linear resolution (VLA D, C and B array). Galaxies include small dwarf galaxies with HI masses of 10 Million solar masses up to massive spiral galaxies with HI masses of 10 Billion solar masses. For the first time, these images show the impressive complex structures in the interstellar medium of galaxies in a wide range of galaxy environments.
