Article assignment 2


Smallest galaxy ever discovered bolsters dark matter theory

-Andrew Fazekas



          This article is about the discovery of the smallest ever galaxy. The miniature galaxy shines with the power output of 900 suns, that's a very low number compared to our galaxy which shines 20 billion times brighter. The only reason this was classified as a true galaxy and not just a star cluster is because of a halo of dark matter around it holding it together.


          This is an amazing article. I have always been intrigued by space, and this is exactly why. The universe is filled with so many mysteries and its always amazing when one is solved or at least a part of it is. This really makes me want to learn more about whats out there but I do have other plans for what I'm going to do but being someone to research space would certainly be fun.
