Hubble Telescope detects the distant star

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) – The NASA Space Space Telescope (NASA) has been recording a star of 9 billion light-years away from the Earth during deep space observations.

During the examination of a supernova explosion by NASA researchers, the giant blue star from which they managed to take pictures thanks to a unique optical effect that came out randomly became the farthest star that has been recorded so far.

The research team headed by Patrick Kelly from the University of Minnesota of USA, the newly discovered star named “Ikarus”, inspired by the hero in Greek mythology.

Scientists who observed a supernova explosion near the “MACS J1149 + 2223” galaxy, which is a distant 5 billion light years from Earth in 2016 within this galaxy, have noticed an illumination previously unavailable there.

Researchers after the color analysis found that the light in question is a giant blue star at a distance. They point out that the star in question could have been watched as a big star nearly as much as the sun has changed his country.

The research leader, Kelly, said, “For the first time, we can see that a single star emerges with magnifying effects. This single star is about 100 times the only star we can see outside the supernova explosions.”

Given that the age of the universe is about 13.7 billion light years, scientists say the star discovered at a distance of 9 billion light years is a wonderful discovery in terms of exploring the early stage of the universe.

Meanwhile, with the launch of NASA’s James Webb Telescope in 2020, this telescope with more accurate optical equipment is foreseen to be more detailed. The Hubble Space Telescope since 1990 is doing space observations.
