Astronomers have found an unusual galaxy of the dark matter age of the Universe

Inside it is a huge black hole in 4 billion times heavier than the Sun.

A strange galaxy called Mrk 1216. It contains the stars with the age of the Universe, that is within 10% from the time of its occurrence. Astronomers have found an unusual galaxy which consists of dark matter with a telescope “Chandra”. Space Observatory NASA recorded Mrk 1216 relating to red compact stellar clusters, with the unofficial title of “red nuggets”. It is believed that the mysterious galaxy appeared 1 billion years after the Big Bang. Up to this point the Universe did not exist. 10 billion years from the present time Mrk 1216 has stopped growing.

Astronomers studied the unusual galaxy in x-rays and determined that dark energy has an unusually large concentration. In the middle of the cluster located a gigantic black hole. The stars in the galaxy are very visible in far distances. It is also not quite fit into the modern understanding of the cosmos.

This discovery, scientists are going to better study dark matter. To date, the observation was considered impossible. Dark matter emits no electromagnetic radiation, so notice it extremely difficult. The conclusion about its existence made on the basis of changes of the gravitational field. Perhaps in the future physics will understand the reasons for the anomalously rapid rotation of the outer areas of galaxies to understand dark matter.
