Farthest known galaxy spotted by NASA

An intensive survey deep into the universe by NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes has yielded the image of the galaxy named SPT0615-JD. It is a primitive star cluster just 500 million years old. The galaxy is 13.3 billion years old. In comparison, the universe is only 13.7 billion years old. Therefore the light from this galaxy has been travelling to us for almost the whole of the history of the universe. The galaxy is so very massively distanced that a phenomenon known as gravitational lensing has caused it to get amplified and stretched out.

Primitive galaxies have been known to this effect. But they mostly appear as red dots due to their small size and great distance.

However here, the gravitational field is so massive that it smears the image into an arc.

“No other candidate galaxy has been found at such a great distance that also gives you the spatial information that this arc image does,” said Brett Salmon of the Space Telescope Science Institute in the US.

Mr Salmon said,”By analysing the effects of gravitational lensing on the image of this galaxy, we can determine its actual size and shape.”

This galaxy is massively distanced that it startled experts with its images.

“This cluster does what no manmade telescope can do,” Marc Postman of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Md., said in a statement unveiling the discovery today (Nov. 15). “Without the magnification, it would require a Herculean effort to observe this galaxy.” Postman leads the Cluster Lensing And Supernova Survey with Hubble (CLASH), which performed the study.

This has broken all previous records of observation held by the Hubble space telescope.

  • My bгother suggested I might like this website. He was
    totally right. This post truly made my day. Yօu can not imagine simply how much time I had spent for this information!
    Thanks!

  • What does this mean? In the practical sense, not much… but in the legal world, it
    works as a sort of sleight-of-hand that protects Uber in the event of a lawsuit.
    You see, under the law, employers are considered to be more
    responsible for the actions of their employees than they are for
    the actions of their independent contractors.
    Uber has used this argument to protect itself against third party plaintiffs many times, including in a lawsuit filed by the family of
    a young girl who was killed by an Uber driver while crossing the street.
    If they can use that defense against an innocent child, you can bet they’ll use
    it against you!
    However, this issue is still a legally hazy one.
    Strong legal precedent has not yet been established
    on this particular question, and different courts have come to different conclusions.

    Right now, the status quo seems to be that Uber drivers
    are considered employees in some areas, and independent contractors in others.

    Regardless, you can be certain that if you were hit by
    an Uber driver, the company will do what it can to avoid having
    to pay you a dime. In these situations, a personal injury attorney is
    more important than ever, and one with experiences in Uber cases is a definite plus.
    If you find yourself in an Uber accident, you should take the
    same steps that you should take after any automobile accident.

    These steps include protecting your own safety by getting out
    of the line of immediate danger and calling 911 if anyone has been injured,
    remaining at the scene and sharing insurance information with any other drivers who were
    involved, calling the police if the accident is serious, and reporting it
    to your insurance company.
