A group of astronomers announced The most distant galaxy ever discoveredwhich arose in the early universe 13.5 billion years ago, although the results need to be confirmed by slower observations.
During more than 1,200 hours of observing the sky with the help of four telescopesastronomers have found “HD1”, an extremely bright object “whose red color matches the characteristics of a 13.5 billion-year-old galaxy,” Yuichi Harikan said in a statement. The Royal Astronomical Society.
Galaxy HD1 is located 100 million years from GN-z11And the most distant galaxy discovered so far, according to the agency France Press agency.
This galaxy was born 300 million years after the Big BangThat led to the creation of the universe, and the light emitted from it traveled for 13.5 billion years to reach Earth. “When I found this red, I shivered,” explains the University of Tokyo astrophysicist, one of the authors of the study that appeared in The Astrophysical Journal.
Now the James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful telescope NASA has ever launched, It should measure, among other things, its strong ultraviolet radiationa sign of activity not predicted by theoretical models of galaxy formation, published Telephone.
