Scientists discovered object 13.5 billion light years away, may be the most distant galaxy

Researchers have found such an object, which is the farthest among the objects discovered till date. This object, named HD1, could be a galaxy, which is estimated to be 13.5 billion light years away from Earth. It is also 100 million light-years away from GN-z11, the most distant galaxy ever discovered. The beauty of the HD1 is that it shines brightly in ultraviolet light. It presents itself as if it were a galaxy. For this reason, scientists are speculating that it may be a starburst galaxy or a galaxy that produces stars rapidly. It has been found that this candidate to become a galaxy is producing more than 100 stars every year. This is 10 times more than normal starburst galaxies.

The discovery was made by an international team of astronomers, including experts from Harvard and the Smithsonian’s Center for Astrophysics.

The team of researchers has two suggestions. First – this object named HD1 can form very fast stars and it can be home to Population III stars, which are the first stars in the universe and which have never been seen before. Another suggestion is that HD1 may be home to a massive black hole 100 million times the mass of our Sun.

In the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ) this Search has been told about. The researchers published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS). Report I have told that he has started thinking about this galaxy.

Fabio Pacucci, the lead author of the MNRAS study and co-author of the paper in ApJ, said that it is difficult to answer all the questions on one source. This research is going to take a long time. Regarding Population III stars, they say that this earliest population of the universe was much larger, brighter and hotter than the stars present today. If we assume that the stars that form in HD1 are Population III stars, the characteristics of the Milky Way can be better described.

HD1 was discovered after nearly 1,200 hours of observations using the Subaru Telescope, the VISTA Telescope, the UK Infrared Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope.
