Astronomers in the US and Australia have spotted a giant galaxy since the dawn of the universe. And they called it "Cosmic Yeti".
Experts accidentally notice the "traces" of a huge galaxy. "Like the Space Yeti, the scientific community usually views these galaxies as folklore, given the lack of evidence for their existence," the researchers explained in a statement.
The galaxy signal took 12.5 billion years to reach Earth, according to research published in The Astrophysical Journal.
EXCLUSIVE CLUSTER OF THE GALAXY DISCOVERED "HIDDEN IN PLANNED WASHINGTON"  Lead author of the study Christina Williams, astronomer at the University of Arizona Large " ) in Chile. "It was very mysterious because the light did not seem to be associated with any known galaxy at all," Williams, a PhD student at the National Science Foundation at the Steward Observatory, said in a statement. "When I saw that this galaxy was invisible at any other wavelength, I was really excited because it meant that it was probably really far away and hidden from clouds of dust."
Experts believe the observed radiation is caused by the warm glow of dust particles heated by the stars that form in the galaxy. However, dust clouds darken the light from the stars themselves, making the galaxy "completely invisible."
times faster than our own galaxy, "said co-author Ivo Labe of Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.
