Astronomers who are constantly monitoring the skies of our planet Earth have recently discovered another gigantic galaxy slowly revolving around our own, the Milky Way.
The greatest mystery lies in the fact that it simply turned visible out of thin air (yeah, I know there is no air in space) without a trace. And funny thing is, this galaxy has always been there and all these years, our space scientists have failed to discover it. The galaxy is called “Crater 2.”
Besides discovering this galaxy, a few more details appeared under the spotlight. First of all, its size is so massive that it has already managed to be the fourth largest galaxies floating close-by; another new galaxy could probably mean that the very existence of extra-terrestrial beings could be actually real!
According to the researchers at the University of Cambridge, besides its humongous size, this galaxy is emitting low-intensity light compared to other galaxies astronomers have discovered so far. They have also nicknamed the galaxy as “the feeble giant.” To me, this entire situation sounds evil.
After the discovery of this gigantic galaxy, it is quite clear that there are still a few more things left undiscovered surrounding our own galaxy. Space scientists have already agreed on to carry out investigation methods they usually follow for finding out details about existing galaxies. Who knows, this “dark galaxy” has to reveal something that we may never have heard before.
