Beaulieu, Sylvie F; Freeman, Kenneth; Hidalgo, Sebastian L; Norman, Colin, A.; Quinn, Peter


We present Hubble Space Telescope photometry of young stars in NGC5102, a nearby gas-rich post-starburst S0 galaxy with a bright young stellar nucleus. We use the IAC-pop/MinnIAC algorithm to derive the recent star formation history in three fields in the bulge and disk of NGC5102. In the disk fields, the recent star formation rate has declined monotonically and is now barely detectable, but a starburst is still in progress in the bulge and has added about 2% to the mass of the bulge over the...[Show more]
