    A 'catastrophic event' halted the birth of new stars in an infant galaxy 10 billion years ago, scientists revealed today.

    They believe this may explain why early giant galaxies similar to our own Milky Way didn't just keep on expanding after they had formed.

    The team from Durham University, observed the massive galaxy, called SMM J1237+6203, as it would have appeared just three billion years after the Big Bang when the Universe was a quarter of its present age.

    According to their findings the galaxy exploded in a series of blasts trillions of times more powerful than any caused by an atomic bomb. The blasts happened every second for millions of years, the scientists said.
