Recently astronomers have discovered that giant cosmic shockwaves emerged out of collision of galaxy clusters and that they are capable of starting an all new star generation. Galaxies often migle up ito groups that contain red and dead galaxies. Scientists say that these dead galaxies that have stopped forming new stars long ago can be brought back to life by giant cosmic tsunamis.

In order to uncover the phenomenon, an international team of researchers observed how these galaxy clusters can absorb small clusters. The phenomenon is the same as a growing city absorbs its suburbs. When these galaxy clusters collide into each others, a mega shockwave of energy if formed. The shoc...
