New Most Distant
Astronomers working with the Hubble Space Telescope, and Spitzer Space
Telescope have what they are calling the most distant galaxy ever
discovered. This based on the redness of the object and not a full spectrum.
The team studying it spent months eliminating other possible identities for
the object. These possible identities including red stars, brown dwarfs, and
galaxies that are red from age or dust but closer they finally came to the
conclusion that a very distant galaxy was the correct explanation. The study
involved 17 different filters ranging from near-ultraviolet to near-infrared
and the galaxy only was seen in the two reddest filters. Its estimated
distance is 13.3 billion light years away which would place it just 420
million years after the big bang is thought to have occurred which leaves
vary little time to for galaxies to form, unless the Big Bang is wrong.
Analysis indicates that the object is less than 600 Light Years across which
is smaller than any galaxy ever observed but about the size of a globular
cluster. Its estimated redshift is x =11.
Now one possibilities not mentioned in the description but suggested by the
object's small size of is that this object is a globular cluster and not a
galaxy. The size comparison is so obvious that it makes one wander why these
it is not mentioned as one of the options eliminated. The most likely reason
would be that proponents of the Big Bang expect to find small embolic
galaxies and so that what it is seen as. Now to be fair if indeed this is a
globular cluster it may be the largest and most distant globular cluster
ever seen this fact could also have prevented them from considering it a
globular cluster after all the largest known globular cluster is about 180
Light Years across. But is a 600 Light Years across globular cluster so far
fetched after all it just 3.3 times the largest one near the milky way
called NGC 5139. Further more if it were actually 4 billion Light Years with
a large velocity relative to the Earth (0.9756c to 0.9938c depending on the
angle) it would be only 180 Light Years across.
However even if this is truly a distant small galaxy it is definitely a
rarity since few have been found out that far. If Galaxies are truly evenly
distributed through space on a large scale then there should be many more
galaxies out there than are observed particularly being able to spot one so
small, even if it is by way of gravitational lensing. This fact alone is
still a problem for the Big Bang.
