A team of astronomers led by scientists from the Niels Bohr Institute has found a swarm of galaxies orbiting the environs of a hyper-luminous and actively star-forming galaxy.
It was found in the early universe using the Very Large Telescope and the radio telescope ALMA in Chile.
The observation offers crucial hints as to how extremely brilliant galaxies develop and transform into intense quasars that radiate light throughout most of the universe that can be observed.
There appears to be a supermassive black hole in the centre of the majority of galaxies.
The phenomena known as a quasar occurs when these gravitational monsters occasionally ingest neighbouring gas and stars while simultaneously ejecting extra energy as strong jets.
Some galaxies are thought to go through a phase of being highly dusty, very "active," in terms of star formation and accretion of gas onto their central, supermassive black holes.
The energy from the centre black hole and stars heats the dust, making it glow and revealing the galaxy through its infrared energy.
The findings of the ALMA show that the gas around the centre black hole rotates beautifully and in a systematic manner.
According to ALMA observations, W0410-0913 appears to have been completely unaffected by interactions with neighbouring galaxies.Orderly, yet incredibly quick, exceeding 500 km/s.
They thrive in crowded, unique environments, but they can get along well with their neighbours.
