Distant galaxy emerges from ‘cosmic fog’

Galaxy UDFy-38135539

Galaxy UDFy-38135539 is the most distant object ever discovered

 

Scientists have discovered the most distant galaxy yet observed from Earth.

Dr Mark Swinbank of the Institute for Computational Cosmology has suggested how light from the galaxy is almost as old as the universe itself. Just about 13 billion years old.

So, in a way, the Universe as we currently see it, is a kind of time machine. We can see 13 billion years into the past. It would be interesting to see the same time into the future!
