In universe we are not only the human beings or not our planet has the life, there are many plantes in the universe which have life on it. The scientist have found many over last 20 years. Now, in a first of its kind discovery, astronomers have detected a close encounter between two hyper-luminous starburst galaxies in the early universe.
Dominik Riechers, an astronomer at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York said that finding just one hyper-luminous starburst galaxy is remarkable in itself. Astronomers captured these two interacting galaxies, called ADFS-27, when they began the gradual process of uniting into a single and massive elliptical galaxy. Study informed that the system apparently consists of approximately 50 times the amount of star-forming gas as the Milky Way.
Riechers said that much of this gas will be converted into new stars very quickly. Our current observations indicate that these two galaxies are indeed producing stars at a breakneck pace, about one thousand times faster than our home galaxy.
The galaxy pair ADFS-27 has been located at approximately 12.7 billion light-years away from our planet in the direction of the Dorado constellation. At this distance, astronomers viewed this system, which had appeared when the universe was only about one billion years old, stated the study.
Riechers said that considering their extreme distance from Earth and the frenetic star-forming activity inside each, it’s possible we may be witnessing the most intense galaxy merger known to date.As per the astronomers, this merger might eventually create the core of an entire galaxy cluster. Galaxy clusters are one of the most massive structures in the universe.
This system was first detected by the European Space Agency’s Herschel Space Observatory. It appeared as a single red dot in the telescope’s survey of the southern sky. These initial observations suggested that the apparently faint object was indeed both tremendously bright and distant.
The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) observatory in Chile precisely measured the distance of this system with its higher resolution and greater sensitivity and revealed the fact that it was in fact not one but two distinct galaxies.
