Our Fossil Galaxy

  • K. C. Freeman

Abstract

The main components of our Galaxy are (1) the disk (thin and thick), which is rapidly rotating; (2) the bulge; (3) the metal weak halo, which rotates very slowly, and (4) the dark corona, which provides most of the mass. Near the sun, there is no rotationally intermediate population.
