William sent in the link https://www.yahoo.com/news/astronomers-accidentally-discover-dark-primordial-130045610.html … but you can read the same story at https://www.sciencealert.com/bizarre-galaxy-discovered-with-seemingly-no-stars-whatsoever … The galaxy appears to have no stars to the surprise of cosmologists. But there must be a reason. Surely. I suppose, in an electric universe scenario, the galaxy needs switching on – or connecting to the grid. Joking aside, the so called galaxy is made up of what looks like a band of gas that looks remarkably like the gas known to exist between stars in ordinary galaxies. The difference is that no stars could be seen by the astronomers studying it. Hence, the idea it is a primordial galaxy – one that is not at the edge of the universe.

It was also found by accident. They were looking for something else. It has no visible stars but stars could still be lurking there, hidden by the gas, they add.

Over at https://www.livescience.com/space/astronomy/einstein-probe-with-unique-lobster-eye-deploys-to-unravel-the-mysteries-of-black-holes-colliding-neutron-stars-and-supernovas … the Einstein Probe left earth on a quest to survey the cosmos for x-ray signals from feeding black holes, colliding neutron stars, and exploding stars. It was launched by China.
