300 million years ago met with little clusters of galaxies with massive specimens together unparalleled. The results have now seen astronomers when looking in a Coma cluster called.div
Huge Vapor bygone galaxies astronomers have discovered the so-called Coma cluster. The “arms” might be traces of superheated gas by the fusion of smaller galaxy clusters with the Coma collection, the researchers report in the journal “Science”. They should be about 300 million years old and hundreds of thousands of light-years long.
The team led by Jeremy Sanders from the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, had discovered the tracks with the X-ray satellite “Chandra” and “XMM-Newton”. The researchers believe that once clashed several small clusters of galaxies with the vast, consisting of thousands of galaxies Coma cluster, while duties hot gas – “like a jet a vapor trail of steam behind it drags when he flies across the sky,” it is a statement of the Institute.
surprised the researchers about the fact that the arms were relatively smooth. When merging of galaxies are expected severe turbulence models predict, the researchers explain. The smooth shape to interpret but even after many mergers “rather quiet backdrop” for the hot gas in the Coma cluster down.
