Another Record Distant Galaxy Found

The Spitzer Space Telescope found a “positively gigantic” galaxy at a time the universe was supposedly only 800 million years old – just 5% the assumed age of the universe – according to a press release from Jet Propulsion Lab.  For the galaxy to be this big that far back, it must have “bulked up amazingly quickly,” the report says.

This shows more of the trend reported last week (see 09/21/2005).  Notice which camp is always surprised.
