ALMA finds massive primordial galaxies swimming in vast ocean of dark matter

(National Radio Astronomy Observatory) ALMA observations push back the epoch of massive-galaxy formation even further by identifying two giant galaxies seen when the universe was only 780 million years old, or about 5 percent its current age.
