Hubble's Camera Discover Oldest Galaxy

Hubble, a space telescope that has been updated, found the oldest galaxies never seen before, scientists said, as reported by AP.

The picture was taken in the area of space were observed in the year 2004. Hubble captured thousands of galaxies that had never seen before. These galaxies formed 600 million years after the Big Bang. The scientists believe, a big blow this lead to the creation of the universe.

A camera "wide field" just in pairs on the Hubble this summer. Hubble also has an infrared channel that allows close-orbiting telescope to see into the universe and galaxies more sharply with distance.

Hubble is a collaboration between NASA and European space agencies. This camera has been installed in May by NASA astronauts as part of its mission to upgrade and repair old telescope. This galaxy is 13 billion light years. Each one light year equals about 6 trillion miles.

Astronomy interests me a lot and yes not only a lot of galaxies but now we're finding planets out of our solar system which we never had any idea about. Amazing how things are outside our solar system and they're very beautiful.
