Finding a dark matter galaxy is an important breakthrough because, according to cosmological models, dark matter is five times more abundant than the ordinary (baryonic) matter that makes up everything we can see and touch.
Astronomers have seen galaxies where the material is moving so fast that they should fly apart - as they don't, there must be a stronger gravitational force acting than can be accounted for using visible matter.
Dark galaxies are thought to form when the density of matter in a galaxy is too low to create the conditions for star formation.

 Chandra Press Room :: Galaxy Clusters, Near and Far, Have a Lot in Common :: April 8, 2005
An XMM-Newton X-ray image of a real galaxy cluster from the study is superimposed to illustrate the formation of galaxy clusters in the densest parts of the universe.
Clusters of galaxies, the largest known gravitationally-bound objects, are the knots in the cosmic web of structure that permeates the Universe.
These measurements were then used to test whether galaxy clusters of different sizes and located at different distances from us are simply scaled versions of each other -- a condition known as being "self-similar." This is an important characteristic for astronomers to identify if they hope to get the true weights of galaxy clusters.

 Milky Way Ring
As smaller galaxies are pulled apart, they dissolve into streams of stars and gas around their host galaxies (see the discussion or "star streams" or "tidal trails" from the Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy).
The Cartwheel galaxy is believed have been a spiral that collided with a smaller neighbor.
In general, galactic rings are most often associated with galaxies that have central "bars" of stars (such as the one found in the Milky Way (now classified as a barred spiral galaxy) or other common non-axisymmetric perturbations such as ovals.

Named Abell 1835 IR1916, the newly discovered galaxy has a redshift of 10 [3] and is located about 13,230 million light-years away.
The fact that the galaxy is not detected in the visible image but present in the others - and more so in the H-band - is an indication that this galaxy has a redshift around 10.
From the images of this galaxy obtained in the various wavebands, the astronomers deduce that it is undergoing a period of intense star formation.

 CfA Press Release
Cambridge, MA- Many examples are known where a galaxy acts as a gravitational lens, producing multiple images on the sky of a more distant object like a bright quasar hidden behind it.
In gravitational lensing, light rays from a quasar which pass close to a galaxy are bent by the galaxy's gravitational field, much as they would be bent when passing through a glass lens.
The denser the center of a galaxy, and the stronger its gravity, the fainter the central image will be.

A team of UK radio astronomers at Jodrell Bank (University of Manchester) have been able to look into the dusty central regions of one of the nearest ``starburst'' galaxies (M82) and study both the physics of exploding stars and probe the detailed anatomy of the galaxy.
Starburst galaxies are uncommon among the local population but much earlier in the history of the universe the majority of galaxies were undergoing rapid bursts of star formation as they were forming, a billion and more years after the Big Bang.
Paradoxically it is their spectacular deaths as supernovae that give the clues to the unusual behaviour of the central population of stars.
