busy chillin': sp86: busy chillin':Okay, thanks...so my first impression was correct. But then of course this galaxy might no longer exist, but we are still seeing the light, right? But I guess that is neither here nor there.I love thinking about the edge of the universe...it makes no sense. how can it end? and even if it stops having galaxies and stars there is still dark matter with sub atomic particles. forever. and ever.it can't end. even if there is nothing there, there is still quarks at the subatomic level. Nothingness is impossible. and if it does end, what is beyond that edge?/probably should have quit while I was tied

Diogenes Teufelsdrockh: StopLurkListen: Gah. A science article from Slate? Gimme a break. FoxNews has better science reporting.Oh wait, it's Phil Plait. I take that back.Darn it! I got tricked into clicking one of his links. Man, that guy is annoying and sucks the brain tickling wonder right out of astronomy. Hasn't gotten any better, it seems.almandot: probably just some dead hot pixels on their sensor. =PPFTFY.Right down near the noise floor, just a few pixels wide and all after gravitational lensing to enhance it. Just imagine what might be found with better tech? I'm rooting for the James Webb Space Telescope and keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't end up a smoldering ruin at the bottom of a failed rocket launch or budget cut.
