A full-sky survey by Nasa's wide-field Wise telescope turned up about 1,000 hot, dust-obscured galaxies, each of which emit as much light as 100 trillion sun-like stars. The objects are rare, accounting for about one in 100,000 light sources, and difficult to find since most of their energy is masked by dust. Astronomers believe the objects, which are twice as warm as similar galaxies, may be a transitional state. www.afortuneonwheels.com
