Hubble reveals the oldest galaxies [Video]
posted January 26 2011 20:27.58 by Giorgos Lazaridis




13.2 billion light-years away, this was the deepest image of galaxies that we knew. And then, some people, out of pure curiosity, turned the Hubble telescope to a dark tiny area of our known universe, an area that was considered "empty". They opened the shutter of the telescope, and kept it open for many days, gathering the light particle by particle. This expensive and risky experiment then revealed the truth: We occupy just a tiny, tiny dot in cosmos, tinier than we could ever imagine. The new photos revealed thousands of new galaxies, aging back when the universe was only 480 million years old. Watch the video and read the article in Universe Today, to see galaxies 30 billion light years away!
