NOT EXTINCT. AGAIN.
From the page: A TEAM OF AUSTRALIAN scientists has discovered a type of galaxy thought to be long gone in the Universe, shaking up existing theories on star formation. Swinburne University astronomy student Andy Green, his supervisor Professor Karl Glazebrook and their colleagues made the discovery using two telescopes at the Siding Springs observatory in NSW.
"We didn't think these galaxies existed. We've found they do, but they are extremely rare," says Karl. Galaxies like these have been seen before in the early Universe, around three billion years after the Big Bang where they were quite common, but this is the first time they have been found in today's Universe.
