ITT we post real photographs/images of the most distant images, light recieved at all, and objects ever discovered (in the tens of billions of light years and more). These are supposed to be part of slideshows, for astronomy and astrophysics nerds, so if your looking for pretty fantasy CGI papes by some fag artist, btfo

Pic above is, as making of this thread, the most distant known individual THING of all, the HD1 galaxy, at an astro-nishing 33.4 billion light years from Israel. Lucky bastard!
>>
>>7910591
forgot to add it was discovered in April this year. Science never slows down, surely something will beat this record soon too. anyway, picrel is previous record holder from March 2016, suprise suprise, a galaxy, GN-z11, at a whopping 32 billion light years from Afrika. Must be so peaceful and quiet.

Yes, this is almost like a journey from the edge of the universe back home, and back in time in terms to technological telescope capacity and scientific record holders. MACS1149-JD1, or PCB2012 3020 if your feeling clever and don't speak simplified (am*rican) English is quite a jump backward, now at 13.28 billion light years from earth. Yes, its a garlic sea again. disco-vered in September 2012 I think. BTW we know the minimum possible size of the universe (and thus, all we know for sure to exist) is 23 trillion light years in diameter. allow the sink to come inside.

our next stop, anons, in our journey thru the universe, is EGSY8p7 (a galaxy), but if that doesn't quite roll of the tongue, feel free to call it EGSY-2008532660. 13.2 trillian light years from demetia biden and all the kids he sniffed.

forgot to mention, found in july 2015.

Anyway, as you anons join me, and we continue our immersive journey through the vastness of the universe.. oh whats that? NO! sorry anons... apparently the next 3 items on the list HAVE NO IMAGES! i already made it clear we're only doing true colour, actual photographs and images, not artists impressions. this *is* a wallpaper thread, not a list. so i'm afraid we have to skip the A2744 YD4 galaxy, at 13.2 billion ly, found 2015, MACS0416 Y1 galaxy, found (i think) 2017, and GRB 090423 a GAMMA RAY BURST (I know. Urgh I know! I'm sorry!!!!!!!!!!! It's just i'm not posting artist's impressions is all. HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA) as i was saying, at 13 billyun ly.

So, our next intergalactic stop is: EGS-zs8-1. found in May 2015, this galaxy is also 13 billion ly from rhodesia, so it can't come to help. remember light travel distance is NOT the same as actual distance, and we are moving from stop to stop from farthest to closest, not record holders (which would mean we skip a lot since, one many times further than the previous record holder could be found when the next record holder, already found is even further.
>>
>>7910599
fuck off back to phlebbit actually.

anyway as i was saying. oh yes, more great news. we're skipping the z7 GSD 3811 galaxy found in 2016 at again, 13 billion ly, and a FUCKING QUASAR COME ON MAN, J0313–1806 found in january 2021, at again, 13 billion ly. seem to be lots of those, can one of you anons who know more than me tell me why 13 billion ly seems to be a sweet spot for finding distant objects? i mean there were those 2 galaxies in the 30's billions but whats up with 13? anyway..

Next stop: z8_GND_5296. a galaxy 13 billion ly from earth, found in october 2013.

>some minor corrections
well, more like additions, since this is getting somewhat repetitive, and let's face it, there all gonna be like 13 billion from here on, so lets make it retroactively more interesting... I'm not gonna post tons of extra info and such or i'll be here for hours.

GN-z11 is an irregular galaxy
MACS1149-JD1 is a dwarf, like fucking warwick davis
i'm not gonna bother posting info of the galaxies i didn't even show, i'm not gonna make it even more painful that you didn't get to see them, and i'm not that cruel, plus i;m getting tired.
EGS-zs8-1 is a Lyman-break galaxy
z8_GND_5296 is another dwarf.
so i only posted the type (and relative idea of the size) you at least know what kind of galaxy. search the rest up yourself. i'm getting tired. from now on, unless stated otherwise, its a galaxy, and its 13 billion ly from bongland. i'll only post the discovery dates and name. and type of gaylaxy

Next up: A1689-zD1, discovered in february 2008. dwarf.

When you phrase it like that, I don't think I've ever been so jealous of a distant galaxy before.

why are they red? and also, if jews exist here, wouldn't jews exist on other planets? like what would stop a race of jews from evolving on another planet? creating their version of communism? and traveling the universe, abolishing people's rights and enslaving people into gulags like our communist did?

if its 33.4 billion light years away, that means it takes 33 billion years for the light to reach us correct? so doesn't that mean the universe is insanely old?

and if the light we are seeing is from 33 billion years ago, wouldn't this mean, if we ever capture something extraexstrial, wouldn't it mean its billions years old at the time we see it? like, if we some how capture a ship from an area of our galaxy that's 1 million light years away, that light, that image, is from 1 million years ago.

we are seeing stuff, as it was, in the past. not present time right?
>>
>>7916152
they appear red due to a phenomenon called "redshift". this has to with the movement of said object combined with a shift in the spectrum of light released from said object. red light has longer wavelengths, which signify that the object is moving away from us, thus lenghtening the wavelength of light released from the object. similarly, objects moving towards us are shifted towards the higher energy side of the spectrum, appearing blue.
>>
>>7910591
thank you for this thread
>>
>>7916155
correct. often when we observe stars -- or rather, the light that they emitted many years ago -- are stars that no longer exist.

when you look at the stars, you are seeing ghosts.

The universe is approximately 13 billion years old. The light in that photo traveled for just under that time, but because the universe is expanding they know it is around 30 billion light-years away.
But, technically, the light has been travelling to us for approx 12 billion years.

I'm gonna contribute some. Here we see gravitional lensing in action. It's a phenomenon in which the light coming from a distant obiect we see gets warped due to the enormous gravitional influence of an celestial body in its path.

Small contribution, I wanted to appreciate Hoag's Object, my favorite deep space object. Hoag's Object is a type of atypical galaxy called a ring galaxy. Hoag's Object specifically is in the constellation Serpens Caput, and is ~613 MLY away, give or take 10 LY.

there is in fact a potential that exists in which this galaxy no longer exists. the light observable to us, a mere after glow of what once was.
