    It means “Other equally bad information came after they discovered that.”

    In this sentence the word ''succeeded'' means that the other discoveries ''came afterwards'' .. and they were as shocking as the first one was.

      Exactly the opposite actually .. This discovery came ''before'' the other ones.
