Now if only my kids were 13.4 billion light years away..

Looks like Spaceballs in the picture. And they have gone plaid.

The galaxy was first detected by Professor Hubert Farnsworth with his smelloscope.

"Universe already 10 weeks pregnant with one galaxy conceives triplet galaxies"

What a slut

I always find it quite interesting when they throw out distances to remote objects. Currently, the age of the universe is still up for grabs. Some say 12 billion, some say as much as 18. If this object is indeed 13.5 billion light years away, its not kosher. Without going into a bunch of astrophysics here, I don't think that a 13.5 billion year old galaxy could exists in a 14 billion year old universe.... not enough time for the matter to condense like that...

I see two problems here. One is that I think the accuracy of dating an object at such extreme distances is not all that good, especially taking gravatational lensing into the affair. That and the fact that they still have no idea how old the galaxy is..

Still pretty cool though.

Cleighton; you forget God made the universe in 6 days. A common misconception is that it was made in 7, but after careful analyss of the origional texts I have deduced that in fact on the seventh day no work took place. This may have been due to the fact that on Sunday none of the shops are open, focing God to finish early and rushiat a bit. This may be why it sucks so much.

Sidecrab: God rested on Saturday to take advantage of the sales.

(Group hug for Gaia!)

Good morning starshine
The universe rings
With milky way music
Our blue planet sings
Good morning starshine
And someday so strong
They'll hear the song we sang
Our early morning singing song

Too bad this isn't a baby galaxy now. It was when the light left it 13.5B years ago. Hey, maybe it was us! But then we would have moved faster than light...oh bother.

Great headline.
