Using a battery of observatories that included the ALMA and the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have obtained the best view to date of a collision between two galaxies that took place when the universe was just a fraction of its current age.

Dwarf Galaxies Formed More Than Their Fair Share Of Universe's Stars
2014-06-19 03:05:21

They may be little, but they pack a big star-forming punch. New observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope show small galaxies, also known as dwarf galaxies, are responsible for forming a large proportion of the universe's stars.

Irregular Galaxy -- In astronomy, a class of galaxy with little structure, which does not conform to any of the standard shapes in the Hubble classification. The two satellite galaxies of the Milky Way, the Magellanic Clouds, are both irregulars. Some galaxies previously classified as irregulars are now known to be normal galaxies distorted by tidal effects or undergoing bursts of star formation (see starburst galaxy). ----- NASA Click here to learn more on this topic from...

Active Galaxy -- An active galaxy is a galaxy where a significant fraction of the energy output is not emitted from normal stellar populations or interstellar gas. This energy, depending on the active galaxy type, can be emitted across most of the electromagnetic spectrum, as infrared, radio waves, UV, X-ray and gamma rays. Frequently, the abbreviation AGN (Active Galactic Nuclei) is used, since most of the active galaxies emit most of their radiation from a narrow region in their...
