We’ve found the oldest star in the known universe – and it’s right on our galactic doorstep | ExtremeTech

We’ve found the oldest star in the known universe – and it’s right on our galactic doorstep | ExtremeTech | Multiverse | Scoop.it
Astronomers have discovered the oldest living star in the universe -- and, remarkably, it's situated right on our galactic doorstep, just 6,000 light years away, well within the Milky Way. The star, which has the abbreviated name of SM0313, was born 13.6 billion years ago -- just 100 or 200 million years after the Big Bang. It is believed that SM0313 is an elusive Population II star -- a star that was formed from the remnants of one of the universe's very first supernovae. By using SM0313's spectrographic fingerprint as a baseline, we will hopefully be able to find more ancient stars, eventually allowing us to build up a better picture of what actually happened during (and before?) the Big Bang.

The real reason why Einstein came to believe in an expanding universe

The real reason why Einstein came to believe in an expanding universe | Multiverse | Scoop.it
According to legend, Albert Einstein changed his mind about the static state of the universe in 1931 after astronomer Edwin Hubble showed him evidence that the universe was expanding. A recent paper shows this is a myth — and that Einstein needed a lot more to change his mind.
