Hubble photographed the oldest galaxy.
Orbital Hubble recorded images, which may be seen the oldest galaxy universe.
NASA experts believe that the age of the galaxy about 13 billion years, and it formed over 480 million years after the Big Bang.
Scientists say that over 500 million years after the Big Bang in the universe there was only one galaxy, namely that which is reflected in the Hubble image. However, after 150 million years after the galaxy has become ten, and another hundred million years, their number doubled.
“Everything started from some objects, like grains of individual stars are born, of which formed scattered clusters of stars. These clusters transformed into a small galaxy, which in turn were those amazing massive galaxies known modern scientists – says professor Richard Bauens, fellow Dutch Leiden Observatory. – It’s amazing that we now think of as running in such complex physical processes, as previously people did not even guess. “
Baues also noted that this information allows scientists to calculate how fast the galaxy expands and helps to keep up with the cosmic chronology.
According to Olivia Johnson of the British Royal Observatory, the explicit dynamics of the evolution of the Universe will help scientists further understand what processes occur in space billions of years ago, including when and how the first stars formed and the galaxy.
“In these critical issues while astronomers struggled to answer, and the fact that we are finally able to look into the original universe, simply amazing” – says Johnson.
And Robert Massey of the Royal Astronomical Society believes that the new Hubble image will help astronomers to verify their current theories about the evolution of the universe.
Recall earlier NASA astronomers discovered the smallest extrasolar planets. As the space agency, found object whose diameter is about 1.4 Earth, called Kepler-10b.
