London: Researchers have discovered a very distant galaxy which is about a thousand times brighter than the Milky Way.

It is the brightest of the submillimetre galaxies, a class of ultraluminous infrared galaxies, according to the researchers.

To measure this galaxy, whose discovery was published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, the researchers used the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC) at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (Garafía, La Palma) in Spain.
