The large workflow of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Phase 1 scale was successfully executed on the world’s fastest supercomputer Summit, as demonstrated in this movie. At its peak execution, 4561 compute nodes (Note: Summit has a total of 4608 nodes) are used, marking a milestone of astronomical data challenge.

Fluorine is a fascinating element in many ways. We report the detection of fluorine (in the form of hydrogen fluoride) in a lensed galaxy at z=4.4, seen as it was 1.3 billion years after the Big Bang. This detection may give valuable clues to the highly debated formation conditions of this element.
We report a galaxy around a strong metal absorber at redshift of 6. This galaxy has halo mass of four hundred billion solar mass, an order of magnitude more massive than that expected from simulations, suggesting that massive galaxies are important in transporting metals than perviously thought.
