Galaxies Are Colliding
Studying several tens of distant galaxies, an international team of astronomers found that galaxies had the same amount of dark matter relative to stars 6 billion years ago as they have now. If confirmed, this suggests a much closer interplay between dark and normal matter than previously believed. The scientists also found that as many as 4 out of 10 galaxies are out of balance. These results shed a new light on how galaxies form and evolve since the Universe was only half its current age.
"This may imply that collisions and merging are important in the formation and evolution of galaxies", said Francois Hammer, Paris Observatory, France, and one of the leaders of the team.
