The authors use a deep survey to locate rare galaxies which were among the earliest to form.
The authors use a cosmological simulation to characterize the rates at which galaxies form new stars.
Small and massive compact galaxies are some of the hardest galaxies to find, but they could potentially reveal how galaxies evolved in the early universe.
Could the strange-looking irregular galaxies actually be remnants of the birth of galaxies? This paper demonstrates a method to find such galaxies.
Using the upcoming Gaia telescope to measure ripples in the Milky Way will allow us to detect the impact of clumps of dark matter on our host galaxy.
