We're very fortunate to have such a great example of a starburst galaxy in our own cosmic backyard-it's like having a galaxy-sized laboratory on hand to conduct experiments and test our theories," Anna Kapinska, from the University of Western Australia and the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, said in a statement Monday on the ICRAR
Vlad Tudor, also from the Curtin University node of ICRAR
