A unique galaxy, dubbed Speca by its discoverers, holds clues to the evolution of galaxies billions of years ago. The galaxy has a combination of characteristics never seen before, giving astronomers a tantalizing peek at processes they believe played key roles in the growth of galaxies and clusters of galaxies early in the history of the Universe.

Researchers have proposed building a nuclear clock that would lose only one-tenth of a second over 14 billion years, the current age of the universe.
The design would be 100 times more accurate than current atomic clocks and might be used in applications such as higher-precision GPS satellites and experiments that probe fundamental physics.Atomic clocks measure time using the oscillations of a single atom and are accurate to 17 decimal places. They are in widespread use for GPS measurements
