It states that scientist have been able to collect imformation by studying the acient light that saturates the cosmos. It explains that the big bang created the universe about 13.8 billion years and blew space up like a giant balloon. Also that the universe remainded seething hot, opaque fog for plasma and engery nearly 400,00 years after the universe burst. And lastly the temperature dropped enough to allow the formation of electrically neutral atoms, turning the universe transparent & Photons began to travel freely, and the light we know as the comic mircowave background.

The night sky presents the viewer with a picture of a calm and unchanging Universe. So the 1929 discovery by Edwin Hubble that the Universe is in fact expanding at enormous speed was revolutionary.

Renee Bow's insight:

This paragraph tells me who discovered it, when it was discovered and that the universe was at enormous speed. I think that paragraph is very useful cause it gives you alot of important imformation in such a small paragraph.

Rare galaxy found furiously turning gas into stars with almost 100% efficiency

Rare galaxy found furiously turning gas into stars with almost 100% efficiency | The big  bang theory | Scoop.it

Astronomers have found a galaxy turning gas into stars with almost 100 percent efficiency, a rare phase of galaxy evolution that is the most extreme yet observed. The findings come from the IRAM Plateau de Bure interferometer in the French Alps, NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

"Galaxies burn gas like a car engine burns fuel. Most galaxies have fairly inefficient engines, meaning they form stars from their stellar fuel tanks far below the maximum theoretical rate," said Jim Geach of McGill University.

 

"This galaxy is like a highly tuned sports car, converting gas to stars at the most efficient rate thought to be possible," he said.

 

The galaxy, called SDSSJ1506+54, jumped out at the researchers when they looked at it using data from WISE's all-sky infrared survey. Infrared light is pouring out of the galaxy, equivalent to more than a thousand billion times the energy of our sun.

 

Hubble's visible-light observations revealed that the galaxy is extremely compact, with most of its light emanating from a region just a few hundred light-years across.

 

"This galaxy is forming stars at a rate hundreds of times faster than our Milky Way galaxy, but the sharp vision of Hubble revealed that the majority of the galaxy's starlight is being emitted by a region just a few percent of the diameter of the Milky Way. This is star formation at its most extreme," said Geach.
