Spitzer Wide-area Infrared Extragalactic (SWIRE) Legacy image of the Tadpole galaxy. Although these galactic mergers are rare in the universe's recent history, astronomers believe that they were much more common in the early universe. Thus, SWIRE team members will use this detailed image of the Tadpole galaxy to help understand the nature of the 'faint red-orange specks' of the early universe.
