Abstract I present an overview of new observations of atomic and molecular gas in early-type galaxies, focusing on the Atlas3D project. Our data on stellar kinematics, age and metallicity, and
Astrophysics: How black holes restrain old galaxies
Observations of an old galaxy reveal a potential mechanism for how supermassive black holes keep star formation under control by ejecting or stirring gas in galaxies.
The ATLAS3D project - X. On the origin of the molecular and ionized gas in early-type galaxies

For early-type galaxies, the ability to sustain a corona of hot, X-ray-emitting gas could have played a key role in quenching their star formation history. A halo of hot gas may act as an effective
