UMass Alums Discover New Monster Galaxy

A team of astronomers, including some from UMass Amherst, have discovered traces of a huge “monster” galaxy never seen before. UMass Assistant Professor of Astronomy Kate Whitaker and postdoctoral fellow Christina Williams at the University of Arizona are both UMass alumni. Whitaker and Williams worked together on the galaxy discovery project. Carolee McGrath sat down with Whitaker to learn more about the discovery and what it all means.
