The Coma cluster
houses nearly 20 times as many dark galaxies as previously known, researchers report.
ISLAMABAD -- After analysing data obtained with the Subaru Telescope, astronomers have discovered 854 "ultra dark galaxies" filled with mysterious dark matter in the Coma Cluster
, one of the richest cluster of galaxies containing thousands of systems.
The Coma cluster
, a non-cool cluster, is filled with gas at a scorching 100 million degrees Celsius.
It shares an evolutionary path with some of the most massive clusters we see today, including the Coma Cluster
and the recently discovered El Gordo Cluster," said team member Mark Brodwin of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
In addition, 18 papers reported research results in such areas as the dark matter halo shape of NGC 2976 via stellar kinematics, investigating inner disk lifetimes in Ophiuchus, barred galaxies in the Coma Cluster
, and detailed abundances in a metal-poor stellar stream.
While investigating the great Coma Cluster
of galaxies, Zwicky chanced upon a dramatic difference between prevailing theory and observation.
Other LJMU astronomers are currently leading the Hubble Space Telescope survey of the COMA cluster
, located some 280 million light years from Earth.
So galaxies in the Coma Cluster
appear to us as they looked seven hundred million years ago, about the time the first jellyfish - its own roseate nucleus of cells and spinning arms - was developing on earth,
The galaxies live in the Coma cluster
, a cache of more than 1,000 galaxies about 300 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices.
TEHRAN (FNA)- A team of astronomers has discovered enormous arms of hot gas in the Coma cluster
of galaxies by using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA's XMM-Newton.
By the present day it has probably grown to be a large metropolis of a cluster like our neighbour, the Coma cluster
1933 Fritz Zwicky examines galaxies in the Coma cluster
and determines that there is unseen mass.
