Galaxies without end: A new radio telescope sky survey has discovered hundreds of thousands of previously unknown galaxies.
This discovery is part of a major release of papers outlining a number of discoveries made by this new sky survey.
I could of course also subheaded this post “The uncertainty of science.” Wanna bet that even with this discovery we have only seen the tip of the iceberg of the number of galaxies out there?
