Astronomers spot 13 billion year old gamma-ray burst

Posted on Thursday, April 30 2009 @ 07:27:37 CEST by

NASA's Swift satellite picked up the most remote gamma-ray burst ever detected, the source is estimated to be more than 13 billion light-years away. The blast occurred when the universe was just a couple of hundred million years old.
Other telescopes then followed up the signal, confirming the source to be more than 13 billion light-years away.

Scientists say the star's destruction probably resulted in a black hole.

"This gets us into a realm where we've never been before," said Professor Nial Tanvir, of the University of Leicester, UK.

"This is the most remote gamma-ray burst (GRB) ever detected, and also the most distant object ever discovered."
