On Star Galaxy discovery, NASA congratulates Indian astronomers
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on Wednesday praised Indian stargazers on the revelation of one of the farthest Star galaxies in the universe estimated to be found 9.3 billion light-years from Earth.
“NASA congratulates researchers on their exciting discovery. Science is collaborative effort around the world and discoveries like these help further humankind’s understanding of where we come from, where are we going, & are we alone,” NASA Public Affairs Officer, Felicia Chou told ANI.
India’s first Multi-Wavelength Space Observatory AstroSat recognized outrageous UV light from a world found 9.3 billion light-years from Earth. The system called AUDFs01 was found by a group of stargazers drove by Dr Kanak Saha from the Inter-University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics(IUCAA) Pune.
India’s AstroSat/UVIT had the option to accomplish this unique accomplishment in light of the fact that the background noise in the UVIT identifier is substantially less than one on the Hubble Space Telescope of US-based NASA.
India’s first Space Observatory AstroSat, was propelled by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on September 28, 2015.
