Herschel spectrum of the galaxy SDSS090122.37+181432.3. A doubled peaked emission line from ionized carbon at 158 micrometres (red fitted line) indicates that this galaxy is rotating with little turbulence. This characteristic is not usually associated with such a young galaxy, instead it is more often taken as a sign of galactic maturity.
