Due to technical problems linked to our actual knowledge and research methods, it is difficult to observe the earliest and most distant objects in the universe. EGS8p7 was “unusually luminous, may be powered by a population of unusually hot stars, and it may have special properties that enabled it to create a large bubble of ionised hydrogen much earlier than is possible for more typical galaxies at these times,” the scientists said. The discoverers have some theories for why they found this extremely distant star hub. Humanity’s understanding of the oldest galaxies still needs some fine-tuning. The research was sponsored by NASA through a Hubble Fellowship, the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, and the National Science Foundation. The findings were published in Astrophysical Journal Letters.
