this is not recent news but...
from a gravitational lensing point of view this is cool
New observations from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope provide strong evidence that the slender, bulgeless galaxies can, like their heftier
counterparts, harbor supermassive black holes at their cores. Previously, astronomers thought that a galaxy without a bulge could not have a
supermassive black hole. In this illustration, jets shooting away from the black holes are depicted as thin streams.
to be clear speculation follows....
so here we have IMHO an optical/density effect.
we are looking side on to a lens
it distorts the image,
and at the perfect angle of incidence (exactly perfectly aligned) the lens edge would make a simi flat galaxy appair to be very flat,
almost too flat lol
i cant access my pics now but from the shape of galaxy lenses if gravitational lensing DL is used the side on convex lens that sourounds the galaxy,
the result is
a very flat sharp image that looks distorted in proportion to its flatness and width.
so if we interperate the side on galaxy with a Density Lensing model the image on the outter edge of the lens would look perfectly flat
