    Hubble discovers most distant galaxy 30 billion light years

    IN BRIEF

    A new image taken using the Hubble Space Telescope has given us an image of the farthest galaxy ever imaged. More than 30 billion light-years away, we see it as it was 13.4 billion years in the past.

    The previous galaxy that was a record holder had a redshift of 8.68, which means we see it as it was some 13.2 billion years in the past. GN-z11, in comparison, has a redshift of 11.1, which puts it at the aforementioned 13.4 billion years and 200 million years closer to the Big Bang. The researchers estimate that the record could only be surpassed with the help of the James Webb Space Telescope.

    So it took thirty billion light years for that light to reach the hubble and the universe is how old?………I get it that the universe is expanding  and at one time this galaxy was closer to the beginning of the universe expanding….. but its still weird adding this up.

    2. We'll have to consult those "creationist" theories again…

    So much doctrine has been crafted to uphold creationist points of how old the universe is… I’m thinking that “time” will simply be explained in order to support whatever point the creationists take.

    I hope science is as expansive to the collective mind as much as our total view of the universe.

    I’m blown away (as well) on the theory that Planet 9 happens to be a reality, as THAT science shows us the possibility of life elsewhere and how the expansion of our knowledge of science will reveal much to our own growth.

    Hell no...I'm not giving up...     cat-gif-238.gif giphy.gif
