University of Toronto professors spot massive star cluster:
Three University of Toronto astronomers spotted the largest cluster of young stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. The cluster is about 30,000 light years from Earth and consists of hundreds of thousands of stars, some 100 times heavier than the sun. Mubdi Rahman, a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto's Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics, named the cluster "Dragonfish" after a New Zealand Artist's illustration of a deep-sea creature.
