New evidence has been discovered by an international team led by astronomers from the National Science Foundationís Arecibo Observatory and from Cardiff University in the United Kingdom that VIRGOHI 21, a mysterious cloud of hydrogen in the Virgo Cluster 50 million light-years from the Earth, is a Dark Galaxy, emitting no starlight.Their results not only indicate the presence of a dark galaxy but also explain the long-standing mystery of its strangely stretched neighbour. Skeptics of the dark-matter interpretation argue that VIRGOHI21 is simply a tidal tail of the nearby galaxy NGC 4254.

Given the story, perhaps something like:
`Our universe never ceases to amaze me, always something to be sensationally interpreted out there.'
Would be more appropriate.
