Various Space Agencies issued press releases concerning the increase in the number of observed galaxies in our universe system.
The 10 times as many galaxies packed into a given volume of space in the early universe compared with what’s found today.
- There are over 2 Trillion Galaxies in the universe, a new research paper suggests against the earlier estimate of 200 Billion. What is the cause of this increased estimate?
- A team of scientists sorted them by their brightness and estimated redshifts to create a 3D model of galaxies which are at different distances.
- This implies that these are of different ages and we have a timeline setting them all apart.
- This study is insightful and provides a better look at the evolution of celestial collections over time.
- This is not a surprise really. Galaxies grow in size by merging together. The direct implication being that the farther back in the past we look, we will find numerous and smaller ones.
- These are ones that have merged to form the bigger galaxies of the present day.
- Although we have a view of the universe; the observable universe as we call it.
- The study uses a new mathematical model that helped to infer the existence of galaxies that the current generation of telescopes are not equipped to observe.
- This is not a new inference, only a confirmation of the older one.
