Man is able to explore the galaxies in the universe CNN.
The discovery was made possible by the Hubble Space Telescope. Astronomers have been trying for decades to find out how many galaxies there are in our universe. By the mid-1990s, they had reached $ 200 billion, thanks to the Hubble Telescope.
But recently, a team led by Christopher Gonzalez of the University of Nottingham in the UK decided to look at something else.
So long ago it was concluded that many galaxies came together. In particular, the smaller ones were “swallowed” by the larger galaxies. When this happens, the galaxies shrink.
The research team analyzed both old and new images produced by Hubble. He then used new mathematical methods to estimate the number of galaxies – currently in space using our telescopes.
The end? 90% of galaxies cannot be seen by even the most powerful telescopes because they are too small or too far away.
“It’s amazing that 90% of the galaxies in the universe have not yet been studied,” Cornelis said.
That is, scientists are working on more and better telescopes. This is the web space telescope, which should be ready by the end of this year.
