NASA scientists have photographed a galaxy in the constellation Virgo - IC 3583. It is located 30 million light-years from Earth, it is incorrect and is made up of blue stars, according to space agency's website. The presence of "bar" may indicate that in the past, IC 3583 has been a spiral galaxy. Often, these galaxies are chaotic shape and is approximately four percent of all galaxies. Dwarf irregular galaxies are seen as an important link in the evolution of galaxies, since they have very high content of gas, which makes them similar to the earliest galaxies in the universe.
