AP story this morning, Joe, says that a group of Japanese astronomers, using the very powerful telescopes on top of Mauna Kea here on the Island of Hawaii, say they have discovered the world's oldest galaxy, a conglomerate of celestial bodies that was formed 12.91 billion light years ago. (There are those, of course, who contend that "their" galaxies are even older.) Fascinating part of all this, of course, is that we have no way of knowing whether this galaxy still exists or whether it went super-nova several billion earth-years ago. No way to tell until the light reaches us.
Isn't space/time a fascinating subject? Do you remember, btw, that a jury in California founf O.J. Simpson not guilty back about 16 or 17 years ago?
What else is new?
