A team of researchers devoted to finding the earliest objects in the universe have reported the detection of the oldest and furthest galaxy ever found. Called EGS8p7, this galaxy is only a little younger than our 13.8 year old universe.
Every 11 years or so, our sun suddenly becomes a much busier place, with sunspots, flares, and all manner of activity bursting from its surface. But, although the results are clear enough, no one was quite sure why. Now, researchers think they’ve finally find an answer to this 4-centuries old scientific mystery.
