It seems that they are running out of things to do press releases about since the spectrograph on hubble died. It has been long known that I Z18 is a very young galaxy. I think it is important to do the follow up work to confirm such ideas, but that galaxy has been used for a long time as a primordial cloud for reasons other than the stars.<br>Eric
