New record for Keck!

Postby jsc248 » Sun Aug 09, 2015 8:15 pm

Hi gang,

Astronomers at the KECK observatory have measured the furthest known galaxy yet. The galaxy with the catchy name of EGSY8p7 has been detected when the universe was a mere 600 million years old. This may sound a lot but by astronomical standards this is very young indeed. Read the full story with images here

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
