The Hubble Space Telescope has captured the faint ghostly radiance of stars released by the ancient galaxies. Gravitational forces broke these galaxies several decades ago.
Recently, researchers discovered light ejecting from almost 500 dead galaxies. These galaxies are also known as”pandora’s Cluster”. The stars of these galaxies are not restricted to a single galaxy anymore . They can effortlessly float anywhere in the Abell 2744. =
Abell 2744 is a huge galaxy cluster which is the result of four individual galaxies. The cluster emerged nearly 350 million years ago.
However, the new study revealed that around six galaxies were broken into small pieces nearly six billion years ago.
The evidences gathered from this research suggest that these galaxies were similar to the size of our Milky Way Galaxy. They played a vital role in the production of the stars. The collective light of the 200 billion outcast stars provide nearly 10 percent of the brightness of cluster.
Ignacio Trujillo, lead researcher notified that the Hubble data provide some really significant information related to the development of galaxy cluster. Scientists discovered an incredible telltale glow with the help of Hubble’s extraordinary capabilities.
Furthermore, scientist figured out that the phantom stars are packed with some heavy components such as oxygen, nitrogen and carbon. It demonstrates that the scattered stars belong to the second or third generation of the stars.
The report is printed in the 1st October’s edition of Astrophysical Journal.
