Jan 28, 2017 · Watch video · A MYSTERIOUS force is wiping out galaxies across the universe baffling scientists who are desperately trying to figure out what is killing off the stars. Express. Home of the Daily and Sunday Express.
In time, astronomers discovered that there is a giant supercluster of galaxies known as the Norma Cluster, which has a mass of about 1,000 trillion suns or thousands of galaxies. The exact position of the mysterious force was pinpointed in 1986.
What the survey revealed was a field of 883 galaxies, a third of which had not previously been suspected says Professor Staveley-Smith.
It dictates the life of the galaxy because the existing stars will cool off and grow old. If you remove the fuel for star formation then you effectively kill the galaxy and turn it into a dead object.
Another idea is that so-called “dark energy”, a mysterious, anti-gravity force discovered in 1998, may be shoving galaxies away from one another more powerfully than originally estimated.
Most people don’t think of dark energy—the all-permeating force driving apart galaxies—as particularly weak.
