Usually, groups of scientists will come up with a find that talks about either a star or some details on the components of a planet, all with the help of recent technology that allows take to have an in-depth perspective at far away objects in space while being light years away from them. However, one thing that one rarely gets to uncover are massive galaxy clusters that that date back to a period in time that was very close to the Big Bang. If we caught your attention and you would like to know more about this discovery then read on!

What did scientist find

Well, they uncovered very large galaxy clusters that, as we have previously mentioned, they believe to date almost three billion years right after the Big Bang happened.  Now, in order for these galaxies to be identified one has to look for protoclusters. What are they? Protoclusters are the high red shift progenitors that are part of galaxy clusters. Usually, they have intensities of dark matter that are higher than average.

However, the theory that we have mentioned before, about protoclusters and their dark matter density may be challenged and deemed inaccurate since recent observations have shown that recently discovered starbursting galaxies do not have the amount of dark matter.

One such example that a team of scientists has decided to use in order to support their theory is the case of SPT2349-56.  Form what they have seen, this galaxy is forming at a rate that at times 1,000 times faster than what has been seen to happen in our Milky Way. The data collected shows that this galaxy may be one of the biggest structures in the Universe, if the enormous star-formation and gas density in this galaxy is anything to go by. Nevertheless, however you look at it this finding challenges formerly instated theories.
