TiNy Titans

(study of dwarf galaxy pairs)

TiNy Titans (TNT) is a project to study Dwarf Galaxy pairs and their mergers, to learn about the evolution and development of galaxies. The galaxies in the study are in the Local Volume (LV) and are identified from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The project also includes simulations to model the galaxies and mergers observed.

It has nothing to do with Saturn's Moon, Titan.
