In a significantly rare discovery, astronomers have located a galaxy cluster that is bursting with new stars at its center using NASA and the Hubble space telescopes. The discovery lends credence to the theory that massive galaxies located at the cores of these tremendous clusters can grow substantially by absorbing the gas taken from another nearby galaxy.
Astronomers, with the borrowed help of NASA’s Spitzer telescope and the Hubble space telescope, have discovered a unique gargantuan galaxy cluster. Unique, due to its core birthing new stars – right in the middle of the galaxy cluster, reports NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
The finding is published in a paper [...]
