Scientists have photographed a record farthe star

Any massive cosmic body, be it a large planet,
star or galaxy changes due to its gravitational
field propagation direction of electromagnetic radiation – so
the same as a normal lens refracts light rays.

Recently, this effect has allowed scientists working with automatic
orbital observatory “Hubble”, take pictures of a star,
9 billion light-years distant from Earth! Such a distance
It was a record man to observe a single object,
located in the depths of space.

The so-called gravitational lensing effect before
allowed the Hubble telescope to photograph incredibly far from
us objects. So, in April 2016, a picture of the galaxy was taken
Gn-Z11 in the constellation Ursa Major. This galaxy is located in
13.4 billion light years from our “blue ball”, i.e.
�”Only” 400 million light years from the place of the alleged
Big Bang, which allegedly formed the universe
(one of the theories recognized by academic science, but not having
unconditional evidence).

However, galaxies, supernovae and gamma flashes are much brighter than single
luminaries. As a rule, at a distance of over 100 million light years
ordinary stars can no longer be considered. However, with a star
MACS J1149 LS1, received a more euphonic name “Icarus”, scientists
I must say, just lucky. Alexey Filippenko, working in
University of California at Berkeley, says he and his
colleagues first received detailed photos of the star, which
existed in one of the first galaxies that appeared in
The universe.

Star 9 billion light years from the solar system

Researchers observed a cluster of galaxies called
MACS J1149 in the constellation Leo. This cluster is located in 5
billions of light years from Earth closes another major
a cluster of galaxies that became visible due to the ring of bright
light surrounding MACS J1149. Analyzing the structure of this
gravitationally-coupled galaxies, American experts
unexpectedly noticed a strange object, essentially getting out of
general picture.

After analyzing the spectrum and calculating the dimensions of this object,
astronomers realized that we are talking about a star from the category of blue
supergiants. It is located on the outskirts of the galaxy, which
about 9 billion light-years away.
Experts suggest that the newly discovered celestial body is very bright and
has a temperature of 11-14 thousand degrees Celsius. So
Thus, “Icarus” is more than 2 times hotter than the Sun.

�”Icarus” became noticeable to “Hubble” only after it shifted to
galaxy and its light began to pass near another star that
increased its visible glow almost 600 times. Star probably
quite ordinary, but what’s most impressive about this news is that
how deeply astronomers have learned to look into space. Maybe already
in the foreseeable future, they will discover in the vastness of space
intelligent life forms that, apart from our planet, are
must exist somewhere else …
