Hubble Telescope Looks 13.2 Billion Light Years Away, Discovers New Galaxy
NASA scientists have once again pushed the envelop of what we previously thought possible, using the Hubble Telescope to find a new galaxy that’s 13.2 billion light years away.
Technically the galaxy was first discovered in 2009, however various tests needed to be completed and computations studied to verify that it actually exists and is actually a galaxy.
Now confirmed, the galaxy is 150 million years older than the oldest previously discovered galaxy and is made up of blue stars.
NASA officials say the new galaxy is very small, in fact it would take hundreds of the galaxy’s star clusters just to make up our own milky way.
