Dead monster galaxy found lurking in the distant universe

“(CNN)An ultramassive monster galaxy dating back to the early days of the universe lived fast and died young, astronomers say in a new study. The galaxy, XMM-2599, existed 12 billion years ago. It rapidly formed a bunch of stars and died, according to data and measurements astronomers took using the W. M. Keck Observatory’s Multi-Object Spectrograph for Infrared Exploration. The observatory is near the summit of the dormant Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii.”

How can it do any lurking if it’s dead? Honestly this space crap gets barmier by the day! Still, nice ‘work’ if you can get it??

Obviously CNN is as gullible as the BBC.
