Schematic showing Hubble image and artist's impression of galaxy discovered with ALMA

A schematic showing an image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of a region of space that looks completely empty (box on left). New research using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has now revealed that the region contains a previously undiscovered galaxy that was buried deep in clouds of gas and dust. An artist’s impression of the galaxy is shown on the right.
