Most Distant Galaxy Ever Seen in Universe

Using the Hubble telescope a compact galaxy of blue stars was found at 13.2 billion light years away. =-O

Check out this incredible video, it also gives you a scope of how large our universe is.

This video is a zoom into the Hubble Space Telescope infrared Ultra Deep Field, first taken in 2009. It is a very small patch of sky in the southern constellation Fornax. The zoom centers on the farthest identified object in the field. The object, possibly a galaxy, looks red because its light has been stretched by the expansion of the universe. Credit: NASA/ESA/G.

    Very cool! I love this stuff. Have you been to the planetarium show at the Griffith Park Observatory?

      I agree, I wish the government invested more money in NASA. I have visited Griffith Park and Observatory, but when I was a kid. I remember the trees more than the stars. =)

    Yeah, I agree about NASA and wanted to be astronaut when I was a little kid. The Planetarium show at the Observatory is actually REALLY cool and worth seeing (at least I think so). You would prob really enjoy it. I left feeling all zen, that my problems are petty compared to the vastness of the universe. 🙂
