The globular clusters in the halos of large galaxies like our own are almost certainly fossil remnants of the early star-forming subsystems from which these galaxies were built. The ages of the halo clusters in our Galaxy indicate...»

In all cases, the prolate hypothesis gives a better fit to the data. If Bok...»
