GALEX UV Spectroscopy of Extended Objects: The Case of NGC3079
We present UV spectra of the edge-on galaxy NGC3079 obtained with the GALEX slitless grism. We fitted the observed spectra with a young stellar component, various amount of extinction, and several extinction curves. Based on our result, we discuss the use of different extinction curves in order to correct the observed UV fluxes.
