Galaxy forming region located.
Spitzer discovers early galaxy forming region of universe.
A cross-organizational team of Astronomers headed by Arjun Dey of the National Optical astronomy Observatory (NOAO) has pulled together optical, infrared, and radio-frequency data to probe what may be an expansive Galaxy forming region located 11.3 BLY's distant in the direction of the constellation Bootes. The gaseous object (SST24 J1434110+331733), extending some 800 KLYs across space, could significantly advance our understanding of Galaxy groups formation in the early universe.
