Z7 and Z8 Galaxies (image) Carnegie Institution for Science Share Print E-Mail Caption This composite color image is of the new infrared Hubble Ultradeep Field taken at 1.0 micron (blue), 1.25 micron (green), and 1.6 micron (red) with the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3/IR) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. Highlighted are the record-breaking high redshift galaxies, where the redshift "z"indicates the amount of stretching the light underwent on its voyage through the expanding universe. Higher redshift means larger distance and hence looking further back in time. The newly found objects are at z~7 (700 million years after the Big Bang: light blue circles) and z~8 (600 million years: dark blue circles) Credit Image courtesy Ivo Labbe Usage Restrictions None Share Print E-Mail Disclaimer: AAAS and EurekAlert! are not responsible for the accuracy of news releases posted to EurekAlert! by contributing institutions or for the use of any information through the EurekAlert system.
