Duo of titanic galaxies caught in extreme starbursting merger
A pair of exceptionally rare hyper-luminous star-forming galaxies have been discovered, representing an extreme galaxy merger. The two extremely bright and massive galaxies have been caught in the act of merging in the early universe. These so-called hyper-luminous starburst galaxies are exceedingly rare at this epoch; as a pair, they may represent one of the most-extreme examples of violent star formation ever observed.
