Japanese astronomers have discovered the oldest galaxy in the universe. The scientists were working in a Hawaii observatory using the Subaru and Keck telescopes on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea.
The Japanese astronomers team ascertains that the galaxy was formed 12.91 billion light years ago or 12.91 billion light years away, and their research will be officially published in the Astrophysical Journal. The scientists with the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan used the Subaru and Keck telescopes on the summit of Mauna Kea – a volcano on the island of Hawaii.
Sensation discovery of these ancient galaxies in fact means that Japanese astronomers are viewing stars from the past – as the source of the light is over 6 trillion km away and takes light years for the light signals to reach the earth. The scientists were looking back in time.
Oldest Galaxy Spotted From Hawaii Telescopes – astronomers says
The Japanese astronomers maintain for the oldest galaxy found so far, that is more ‘ watertight, ‘ according to other corresponding scientists, since it revels methods that everyone can agree on. Current theory holds that the universe was born of an unimaginable explosion, called the Big Bang forming the first stars and galaxies, about 13.7 billion years ago. Using top-notch infrared and optical telescopes, the Japanese astronomers peer right through the early days of the Universe.
