Astronomers have emerged with the most distant object ever found. The team of astronomers, led by Wei Zheng of The Johns Hopkins University, making use of the NASA's Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes have discovered a tiny galaxy, which they believe to be the most distant object, located 13.2 billion light years away.
They suggested that if they consider the universe to be just 500 million years old presently, then the discovered galaxy must be one of the initially developed star clusters. It was due to this process, cosmological events, that the universe was able to make its way out of the primordial darkness.
While discovering the tiny galaxy, astronomers not only made use of the telescope, but also deployed a suitable interstellar enlargement effect called gravitational lensing. Einstein forecasted of this process, which happens when the gravitational pull of the forefront objects deforms and enlarges the light emitted by the objects in the background.
In the recent case, the light of the far-away galaxy was magnified by a factor of 15, which helped the astronomers to have a glance. Further, the astronomers were amazed after they got to know that the new galaxy was only 1% of the total mass of our galaxy.
