Abstract

The “middle” here refers to the middle of the Hubble tuning fork of galaxy classification, where the S0 galaxies were originally placed. Work done in recent decades has disputed this status bestowed upon S0 galaxies. I will cite a few examples which will serve the purpose of establishing a motivation to study them in detail. Then, I shall describe my own work based on mid-infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope’s Infrared Array Camera (IRAC).
