Astronomers: the First galaxies were surrounded by concentrations of dark matter

Astronomers have found two ancient galaxies that existed in the days of the young Universe. The detected objects are surrounded by clusters of dark matter whose mass exceeds the weight of the Sun a trillion times.


The ALMA telescope have discovered two galaxies that were formed approximately a billion years after the beginning of the Universe. Astronomers argue that this suggests that large space objects began to occur much earlier than previously thought. The surprise of the scientists was the fact that galaxies are surrounded by multiple clusters of black.

Scientists discovered clusters have a common name SPT0311-58. According to scientists, two large galaxies will soon merge into one giant, which will be the largest galaxy known to exist. Experts believe that this discovery will allow them to find out what role he played dark matter in the formation of the first structures.
