Hubble spots candidate for most distant known galaxy

Probable nouveau record de la galaxie la plus lointaine jamais observée !

The newly discovered galaxy, named is very young and only a tiny fraction of the size of our Milky Way. The object was observed 420 million years after the big bang

These images are from a Hubble Space Telescope survey to find Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs) in support of NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto. The Kuiper Belt is a debris field of icy bodies left over from the solar system's formation 4.6 billion years ago.

These six galaxy clusters are a subset of the 38 that scientists observed with Chandra, with distances ranging from 1.4 to 9.3 billion light years from Earth, to help determine the Hubble constant. The Hubble constant, or the Hubble parameter, is a critically important number that sets the expansion rate of the Universe, and is derived by measuring the speeds that the clusters are moving away from us and dividing by the cluster distances.

This image was obtained with the wide-field view of the Mosaic II camera on the Blanco 4-meter telescope at Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory on January 11th, 2012. It shows a portion of the giant Monceros R2 molecular cloud. It is a location of massive star formation, particularly in the location of the bright red nebula at the right center of the image.

New Horizons' Pluto Encounter is Already Amazing | Popular Science

With New Horizons flying ever closer and closer to Pluto and Charon, this collage of photos clearly shows how they actually orbit around a common center of mass instead of one around the other.
