Research team accidentally discovers galaxy that is dying nine billion light years away using the ALMA, or Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array telescope.
Using the telescope Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers observed a galaxy, nine billion light years away from the Earth, ejecting nearly half of its star-forming gas and losing fuel.
For the first time ever, astronomers are witnessing a galaxy death
Galaxies begin to ‘die’ when star formation stops inside them or they start losing material that forms stars.
The findings were published in the journal Nature Astronomy Monday
