Hubble Telescope Discovers Over 200 Dwarf Galaxies

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Hubble Space Telescope, in operation since the 1990’s and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s, (NASA), eye into the deep places of the universe, has discovered the existence of dwarf galaxies dating back to just after the big bang.

“The galaxies aren't just interesting for their age, but also for how faint they are. ‘"The faintest galaxies detected in these Hubble observations are fainter than any other yet uncovered in the deepest Hubble observations,"’says Johan Richard, an astronomer who worked on the project as reported in CNET.”

The group or cluster of galaxies date back to between 600 to 900 billion years after the Big Bang. The staggering amount of time is filtered through a developed mind, which understands time according to earthly structure, which is quite opposite of the universe which dictates time according to development which according to astronomers is nearly 12Billion years.

 Wikipedia.com defines a galaxy as “a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gases, dust and dark matter.”

Held together in the atmosphere, by gravity, these particles sometimes remain undiscovered for billions of years. These sub-galaxies within the greater galaxy have long been a part of NASA’s research.

The Hubble Space Telescope has been the subject of fascination throughout its history with multiple films, including the most recent HUBBLE 3-D, that premiered in Washington D.C. in 2008.

HUBBLE 3-D

Hubble 3-D followed three Shuttle flights including the initial deployment, first repair and final repair. The film shadowed the crewmembers as they prepared for their historic mission, through grueling hours of fine-tuning, deep water training, the closest they could get to on ground weightlessness, as if the mission of the space program rested on their capable shoulders. And in some respects it did.

Hubble 3-D offers an up close and personal tour of our space program. The film captured photos of distant galaxies, filmed pre-flight preparedness, in-flight weightlessness, the tenacity needed for the complexity of the projects, the failure of the Hubble’s early days and as Hubble approaches twenty-one, the success of its repairs.

The images taken by Hubble, post repair, through infrared depict red-beige cumulous cloud beds, deep womb like caverns, vacuums, which are considered the birthplace of stars. These images, without assistance of Hubble, would never be seen by man. If these pictures are accurate then the birthplace of the star, the countless trillions of stars that make up the galaxies, are these caverns of deep red-beige planetary clouds.

Hubble’s images show the origin of the star as having a sheath like appearance, similar to a Jellyfish, with a single glowing eye, housed in a nursery of stars, that are released to live, from their celestial birthing home, for a limitless or limited time, either burning out or sustaining their light and life through infinity.  

Hubble 3-D is a sure way of calculating that interest in NASA’s space program will grow. Scientifically the Hubble mission was a success and still begs the question, “What’s next?” Repairing the telescope to photograph more accurate images, more clearly defined images of galaxies outside the reach of even the most powerful telescopic eye, unlocking the mysteries of the universe are a Pandora’s Box that now opened excite with the curiosity of discovery. The next, new frontier, seems to be Mars.

NASA continues to dominate the news and the interest of the population, young, old, male and female, space exploration, the final frontier continues to prove that it is all things except final and ending. The frontier, seems limitless.
