Researchers have developed time machine simulations for the very first time that recreate the full lifecycle of large collections of ancient galaxies observed in the distant universe 11 billion years ago. This will help them study how the universe was shaped, directly reproducing the structures that researchers actually observe in the universe.
Why is it called a time machine simulation? It’s because the light from the distant universe is only reaching Earth now, thus the galaxies that telescopes observe today are essentially a snapshot of the past. In this case, the researchers took snapshots of young”grandparent galaxies in the universe and then fast forwarded their age to see how clusters of galaxies would eventually form. Speaking of time machines, how about this Tesla Cybertruck DeLorean mashup? We’d definitely like to see this in a Back to the Future reboot or sequel.
- Superior optics: The Celestron 70mm Travel Scope features high-quality, fully-coated glass optics, a potent 70mm objective lens, a lightweight frame, and a custom backpack to carry it all. Its quality is unmatched in its class and against competitors.
- Powerful eyepieces for up-close viewing: Our telescope for astronomy beginners is equipped with 2 high-quality eyepieces (20mm and 10mm) that provide low- and high-power views of celestial objects at night and terrestrial objects during the day.
- Large 70mm objective lens: Our refractor telescope is equipped with a large 70mm aperture objective lens that provides enhanced, brighter views compared to the 50mm model while adding very little additional weight. Setting up and using the Travel Scope is quick and easy.
- Bonus bag, tripod, moon filter, 2x barlow, bluetooth shutter release, smartphone adapter and software: Highly portable and ready for your digiscoping adventures. Also includes a FREE download of one of the top consumer rated astronomy software programs.
- Unbeatable warranty and customer support: Buy with confidence from the telescope brand, based in California since 1960. You’ll also receive a 2-year warranty and unlimited access to technical support from our team of US-based experts.
We wanted to try developing a full simulation of the real distant universe to see how structures started out and how they ended. It’s like finding an old black-and-white picture of your grandfather and creating a video of his life,” said Metin Ata, First author from the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe Project.
