Scientists spot new galaxy far, far away...

A team of international scientists has observed a distant galaxy that has never been glimpsed before, so remote that its light takes billions of light-years to reach the earth, researchers said Sunday.

Spectacular images of the far-off galaxy were spied through the Hubble space telescope and confirmed by the Keck observatory in Hawaii.

The scientists revealed their findings during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science that runs here until Monday. It took 13 billion light-years for light from the galaxy to reach the earth, light that was first emitted from the galaxy when the universe was just 750 million years old, according to the scientists.

"The galaxy we have discovered is extremely faint, and verifying its distance has been an extraordinary challenging adventure," explained astronomer Jean-Paul Kneib, of the California Institute of Technology and the Midi-Pyrenees observatory in France, the principal investigator who helped confirmed the sighting.

The location of the galaxy was plotted through a long exposure of the Abell 2218 cluster taken with the Hubble space telescope, and confirmed with telescopses based at the Keck laboratory, informs &to=http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au' target=_blank>TheAustralian

Russia gets rid of world’s most powerful nuclear submarines

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
