In a revolutionary exploration, an international team of astronomers and NASA were conducted by Indian native Goa-born scientist Dr.Vithal Tilvi. Dr.Tilvi succeeded in reaching the impossible with its sight of the farthest group of galaxies ever. Supposedly, EGS77 is placed 13 million light-years away from the Earth and is proved to be the most distant galaxy group to have ever been noticed by astronomers.
Regularly, it is very challenging to observe galaxies as fas as the EGS77 due to the existence of hydrogen mist in the Universe. Such an element stops much of the galaxy light. Fortunately, extreme heat from the same galaxies removes the encircling cloud, allowing the galaxy light to move quickly to our planet. The team of scientists detailed their results in a study published in the Astrophysical Journal.
Astronomers found the farthest group of galaxies to date
Scientists explain how gazing at the recently discovered galaxy is like taking a glimpse back in time as the starlight has been moving for 13 billion years before it could be noticed from Earth. NasaHubble posted on Twitter: “This is the farthest galaxy group identified to date. Three galaxies of the EGS77 galaxy group, shown in the green circles, lie at a redshift of 7.7, which means we’re seeing them as they were when the universe was just 680 million years old.”
On its path, it must have removed all the hydrogen clouds, making our universe develop an obscure to a transparent one, as we can currently notice. That group of galaxies can support astronomers on their projects and help them observe the Universe directly in its first periods. Also, they would see what chemicals were near when the Universe was releasing its first breaths of hope. Dr.Tilvi stated: “Because of its extremely large distance of 13 billion light-years, we are seeing this galaxy as it was 13 billion years ago.”
