Post-starburst E+A galaxies show indications of a powerful starburst that was quenched abruptly. Their disturbed, bulge-dominated morphologies suggest that they are merger remnants. The more massive E+A galaxies are suggested to be quenched by active galactic nucleus (AGN) feedback, yet little is known about AGN-driven winds in this short-lived phase. We present spatially resolved integral field unit spectroscopy by the Keck Cosmic Web Imager of SDSS J003443.68 + 251020.9, at z = 0.118. The...[Show more]
