The Sculptor Dwarf Spheroidal is a dwarf galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. The Sculptor Dwarf contains only 4 percent of the carbon and other heavy elements in our own galaxy, the Milky Way, making it similar to primitive galaxies seen at the edge of the universe. This quantity of old stars makes the Sculptor Dwarf a prime target for studying the earliest periods of star formation.
