Scientists have found a record-breaking collection of molecules in 2 ancient galaxies

A wealth of molecules appeared in two galaxies that we see as more than 12 billion years ago, revealing information about how the ancient kingdoms became stars.

One of the distant galaxies, APM 08279+5255, is home to a quasar – an active supermassive black hole at its core is engulfing a lot of gas — while the other galaxy, NCv1.143, is a more “normal” galaxy. Both, however, are seen forming star at a furious rate, hundreds of times more stars than that Milky Way galaxy now creating.
