Scientists Find Remnant of Strange Dismembered Star Cluster at Galaxy's Edge

Quote

Flagstaff, AZ. – An international team of astronomers, including Lowell Observatory’s Dr. Kyler Kuehn, has discovered the remnant of an ancient collection of stars that was torn apart by our own galaxy, the Milky Way, more than two billion years ago.

The extraordinary discovery of this shredded ‘globular cluster’ is surprising, as the stars in this galactic archaeological find have much lower quantities of heavier elements than in other such clusters. The evidence strongly suggests the original structure was the last of its kind, a globular cluster whose birth and life were different from those remaining today.
