MEGAMASER. When galaxies merge, they become extremely dense, and hydroxyl molecules produce a specific radio signal known as a maser in radio waves, and when that signal is very bright it is called a megamaser. A megamaser nicknamed Nkalakatha (a Zulu word that means big boss) has been detected 58 thousand billion billion kms from Earth, so the time that the light took to arrive could be greater than the age of the solar system.
