Specific SFR (sSFR) against stellar mass for NGC 7252 corresponding to the total galaxy (purple), VIMOS field-of-view (green), and nuclear star forming disc (blue). The bimodal galaxy distribution from SDSS MPA-JHU catalog (Kauffmann et al. 2003; Brinchmann et al. 2004) is shown as contours for comparison. Assuming a constant depletion timescale of tdep = 1.9 ± 0.6 Gyr for NGC 7252 based on the molecular gas mass derived from CO(1–0) (Ueda et al. 2014) we predict the position of NGC 7252 for the next 5 Gyr in case of simple gas consumption.
