The first quiescent researchers reveal features of the ancient galaxy 25 billion light years away

Spiral galaxy artwork

GS-9209, a galaxy discovered by the Edinburgh researchers and detailed by the James Webb Space Telescope, is the earliest known quiescent galaxy, forming 600 to 800 million years after the Big Bang and ceasing star production half a billion years later. Despite being smaller than the Milky Way, it contains a similar number of stars … Read more
