A group of researchers from USA and Russia recognized a Dwarf Galaxy, which is 7 million light years from the Earth and 10,000 times smaller than our Milky way galaxy. The galaxy was named as Kks3 and found in the way of southern constellation of Hydrus by utilizing the Hubble Space Telescope.
As per the astronomers Kks3 does not have the same characteristics like the spiral arms which can be found in our galaxies. Kks3 does not have the required raw materials to create its own particular star and abandons older and paler remnants of stars. Researchers are proposing that larger stars like Andromeda are stripping this tinny galaxy of its raw materials. They are stating it was hard job to discover a little galaxy like this, as they have experienced never-ending collection of cosmic data to inspect.
The small galaxy was discovered by Dimitry Makarov, and Russian astronomers from the Special Astrophysical Observatory. They have found this galaxy while they were mapping out a cluster of galaxies in the Milky Way`s region. After the find Markov said, “Discovering objects like Kks3 is careful work, even with observatories like the Hubble Space Telescope… It might be that there are a colossal number of dwarf spheroidal galaxies out there, something that would have significant outcomes for our thoughts regarding the development of the universe”. The researchers suspected that Kks3 was a part of another bigger galaxy, however later had found that this is a galaxy all alone’s. Kks3 was mapped in August and the researchers found that its stars weights together 23 million times more the Sun. The researchers are confident of discovering more dsph galaxies after the revelation of Kks3. They recommend that more up to date and powerful telescope like James Webb Space Telescope and the European Extremely Large Telescope will make more revelations.
The researchers are also making this revelation an imperative one, as they think that this will help them understand more about the universe and particularly dark matter. This sort of tiny galaxy is enclosed by the corona of dark matter.
