Accidentally stumbling across a nearby galaxy gives astronomers a hint that there may be many more galaxies of this type out there, just waiting to be found behind the nearest star cluster.
The ancient galaxy is one of the oldest and most isolated galaxies known to man, and was named after Luigi Bedin, a researcher at Italy's National Institute for Astrophysics who discovered it.
"As they merged to form larger galaxies the population density of galaxies in space dwindled". Relative to other galaxies in the universe, NASA says that Bedin 1 is essentially in our planet's own "cosmic backyard".
Much closer to home are nebulae, star clusters, and assorted other foreground celestial objects that are mostly within our Milky Way galaxy.
The researchers that discovered Bedin-1 were really lucky to have stumbled on it by accident, because it's so small and faint it would probably never have been discovered on goal with current instruments. The human residents of the Milky Way galaxy are now saying hi to a neighboring galaxy we didn't even know existed.
Though it might be hard to imagine, astronomers stumbled on this galaxy by accident. Dwarf spheroidals are galaxies that are in retirement; the star formation party is over, and the stars that they do have are old and dim. Bedin 1 has sat quietly ever since, letting its massive stars burn out and die and making no new stars to replace them, unperturbed by the cosmic shuffle around it.
According to an academic paper published by Bedin and astronomers from Italy, the UK, Germany and the United States, the newly discovered galaxy consists mostly of red giants, and is located some 28.38 million light years from Earth, and at least 2.12 million light years from its neighbour, NGC 6744.
The astronomers also note that a survey planned for the upcoming Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST, planned to launch in the mid-2020's) may find more of these small, hermit-like galaxies.
According to several user forums, Windows users in the United States and UK are facing Windows Update issues. Once you change the setting to Google's public DNS, head back to Windows Update and check for updates.

The 29-year-old has the option to "buy back" his free agency from the Eagles for $2 million, which Rapaport says is "likely". Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and general manager Howie Roseman both backed Wentz last month as the team's starter.
Gibraltar officials said the use of the term colony did not help to create a "climate of trust" between the territory and Spain. In a 2002 referendum on whether Britain and Spain should share sovereignty over Gibraltar, 99 percent of voters said no.
Existing regulations state that e-commerce firms can not exercise ownership over the goods sold on their online marketplace. Clothing from Indian department store chain Shopper's Stop was also no longer available, as Amazon owns 5% of the company.

The glacier has retreated at a steady rate of about 0.4 to 0.5 miles (0.6 to 0.8 km) annually since 1992, the researchers found. With climate change likely to continue accelerating this melt, the implications for global sea level rise are considerable.
