There is a lot of doubt about the answer to this question. Depending on the sources, it could be spiral or elliptical.
The most common type of galaxy is a dwarf galaxy.
Of the main types of galaxies:
Within our "local area" spiral galaxies are the most common with anywhere between 60 -> 75% of all galaxies. Ellipticals account only for 3 -> 20% whereas Irregular account for 5 -> 25%.
Confused? You should be.
The problem with the data is that it doesn't stipulate the area involved. Most percentages and answers are related to our local area and not the whole Universe. Also, as the most common type of galaxy is a dwarf elliptical galaxy, they use this as an Elliptical galaxy.
Also, as observation data on far away galaxies is a record of what they were then, not what they are now.
So: A dwarf elliptical galaxy is the most common type of galaxy, and a Spiral galaxy is the most common type of main galaxy.
Locally Main- Spiral galaxies are more common making up about 60% of all galaxies, whereas elliptical galaxies only account for about 10 - 15%
An elliptical galaxy is the most common form.
there are 3 types of galaxies. 1.spiral 2.elliptical 3.irregular the main galaxy in our universe would be a spiral galaxy
i guess spiral galaxy
The ellipticalgalexy is most common in the universe, being about 70% of all galaxies we are aware of.
The most common element in the universe is hydrogen. This is also the most common element in the Milky Way.
In our galaxy, Hyrdogen, Helium, oxygen, Carbon.
External radiation therapy is the most common kind of radiation therapy
No. The largest known galaxy of its kind is the spiral galaxy Malin 1.
Earth is in a Spiral Galaxy.
Which kind of galaxy has arms of gas and dust?
An elliptical galaxy is an egg shaped galaxy that has an almost featureless image.
Its an barred Spiral Galaxy
a barred spiral galaxy
Betelgeuse is in our galaxy, the Milky Way.
A comet one stupid.
A spiral galaxy, similar to our own galaxy (the Milky Way).
A Labrador Retriever is the most common dog to have as a pet. ^-^
Yes, in fact, there are countless numbers of galaxies. Our particular galaxy is called a spiral galaxy and is the most common shape of galaxies.
I think the least common is elliptical or irregular..
