An Amateur Astronomer Finds “Fossil Galaxy” in Unexpected Region of Space
You already have a basic understanding of the wonders of our universe if you are familiar with the Andromeda galaxy, sometimes known as Messier 31 or just M31
There are around 1 trillion stars in the Andromeda galaxy, which is more than twice as large as the Milky Way. That has around five times as many stars as our own galaxy is thought to contain!
However, there is still another galaxy nearby Andromeda that is at least as amazing.
An amateur astronomer named Giuseppe Donatiello discovered the "corpse" of a galaxy close to the enormous Andromeda galaxy itself!
According to space.com, the newfound galaxy fossil in question has been given the name Pegasus V.
It's an extremely dim dwarf galaxy, thought to be a survivor of the first galaxies that shone light on the cosmos.
Some people can claim that the image is empty upon closer inspection. However, you are aware that there is often a method to someone's madness, and in this instance, it is fully discernible.
The finding might possibly open the door to a deeper comprehension of galaxy formation. Surprisingly, astronomers still have a lot to learn about this feature.
The new study's director, Michelle Collins, a professor at the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom, provided the following explanation:
We might learn more about how galaxies originate and whether our knowledge of dark matter is accurate from this little fossil galaxy from the early cosmos.
Earth is approximately 2.53 million light years from the Andromeda galaxy. In the distant future, Andromeda and our Milky Way galaxy will combine to form a much larger galaxy.
