Hubble discovers most distant galaxy 30 billion light years
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.7wo7rees, Mom Cat, ThouArtThat and 4 othersEnthusiast, MrMickeysMom, Two way street, Johnny Rash like this
