Gerald Hawkins Quote
We should expect to find stars and galaxies in all stages of evolution as they form from existing material and then decay. For stars this is certainly the case.... There may be a similar evolutionary process for galaxies, but at the moment we do not have enough experimental evidence to give us the clues to the evolutionary pattern.
