Dubbed the Phoenix Cluster by the scientists that studied its properties, the incredible stellar mass, officially listed as Cluster SPT-CLJ2344-4243, spews out more than 700 new stars a year and is one of the most intense X-ray producing clusters in the known universe. Compare the annual number of newborn stars in the Phoenix Cluster to more normal-sized galaxies like the Milky Way. At best, our galaxy produces several new stars each year.
