A group of astronomers from China, the United States and Chile discovered six new galaxies formed 800 million years after the Big Bang. This discovery, according to scientists, is a breakthrough in the field of observing galaxies of the so-called era of deionization (the period of the history of the Universe between 550 and 800 million years after the Big Bang) and will help in studying the processes of star formation.
The opening was made in the framework of the LAGER project, initiated by the Chinese. With the help of the telescopes located in Chile, the researchers found 23 candidates in the galaxy, formed 800 million years after the Big Bang. In addition, scientists concluded that by that time the fraction of ionized hydrogen had reached 50 percent. These photos will amaze you!
