Invisible Dark-Matter Galaxy has Ten Billion

2 posts in this topic

New evidence has been discovered by an international team led by astronomers from the National Science Foundation’s 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.

An invisible dark matter galaxy and ten billion times more massive the sun? Our universe never ceases to amaze me, always something to be discovered out there,

It's a neat story, thefinalfrontier, but I would reword your last statement:

Our universe never ceases to amaze me, always something to be discovered out there,

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.
