Hi, friends!  I hope you won't forget me while I'm trying to kick-start my regular job.  I have a higher student load this year and that not only takes priority, I'm lovin' it!  But so that you don't forget why I was supposed to be here, you might want to take a look at
New Scientist Space - Massive young galaxy surprises astronomers
the new (ancient) Galaxy that they found buried in the Hubble Deep Field montages.  It is way out there on the edge of our ability to apprehend (they estimate only 800 million years after the Big Bang) and yet it is super-massive (several times the mass of the Milky Way) and it just blows their paradigm to smithereens.  So, we ask, how did galaxies form?  The old fashioned way: massive followed by disintegration; or simple to complex the super gravitational way?  The answer is "up in the air," no?
