Scientists have found a “lone” galaxy
While our galaxy, there are ten such satellites, Messier 94 has only two.
“It’s not just some deviation from the norm. Existing theories of galaxy formation can not explain this,” says astronomer Adam Smartine.
The researchers conducted additional testing using traces of radiation, and was not able to detect other galaxies are satellites.
“That’s what the main interest of such a discovery when they find that it is impossible to predict in the simulation. When they discover something, a reality which never even believed it broadens the horizons of knowledge. This is really encouraging,” he added Smertin.
