Re: Baby galaxy
The article notes that, "Further evidence for the youth of I Zwicky 18 is the fact that its interstellar gas is "nearly pristine," Thuan said, and composed mostly of hydrogen and helium, the primary two light elements created in the Big Bang, during the first three minutes of the universe's existence. The dwarf galaxy includes only a sprinkling of the other heavier elements such as carbon, nitrogen, or oxygen that are created later as stars develop. The near absence of such heavy elements suggests that much of the primordial gas in the dwarf galaxy has not managed to form stars that subsequently manufacture heavy elements."
