Astronomers at Northwestern University have found newer, bluer galaxies than expected in nearby galaxy clusters, suggesting broods of young stars in these galaxies. The finding, presented at the American Astronomical Society annual meeting in San Diego, shows that star formation from galactic gas and dust in these clusters has occurred much more recently than astronomers had thought -- and may in fact be an ongoing process.
