Fossil Cloud May Provide A Key To Understanding How First Galaxies Formed

So much is still unknown about how exactly our universe began but remnants from that moment after the Big Bang are continuously being observed and discovered by astronomers today.

A relic cloud of gas, orphaned after the Big Bang, has been discovered in the distant universe by astronomers using the world's most powerful optical telescope, the W. M. Keck Observatory on Maunakea, Hawaii.
The discovery of such a rare fossil, led by PhD student Fred Robert and Professor Michael Murphy at Swinburne University of Technology, offers new information about how the first galaxies in the universe formed.

We will know more from this discovery after the results of the paper are published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Learn more about it on
