Yet another farthest known galaxy discovered? Read about it here Okay, so they say they've found another galaxy 13.23 billion light years away. Thats great. And this coming 2 weeks after the former futhest galazy was discovered. Now I was thinking, and some of the data that I'm reading about these discoveries just doesn't make logical sense. They say the universe is 14 billion years old. This galaxy is 13.23 billion light years away. So they say that the light from the galaxy (what we are seing) is that of the galaxy when it was 470 million years old. If I did the math right, the Milky Way and that galaxy have been moving apart at 94.5% the speed of light for the past 14 billion years (if infact 14 billion years is any plausible number) So, does that theoretically mean that our galaxy and the other galaxy have been moving apart so fast that if we could watch it in detail, we are watching it at 5.5% of its acutal speed? That is the only way I could imagin us seeing an object 13.23 billion light years away is a universe that is suposedly only 14 billion years old.... if the 2 objects have been putting 94.5% of a light year distance between them per year Any astronomy buffs know a more logical explaination to this?
