This galaxy is so large, so fully-formed, astronomers say it shouldn’t exist at all. It’s called a “grand-design” spiral galaxy, and unlike most galaxies of its kind, this one is old. Like, really, really old. According to a new study conducted by researchers using NASA’s Hubble Telescope, it dates back roughly 10.7-billion years — and that makes it the most ancient spiral galaxy we’ve ever discovered.
Not only because it is just a tad bit older than 6000 years… but because the mechanics of it doesn’t make sense – except maybe the way real scientists explain it.
Thinking to myself, I had to laugh. Do you think that if there is life in this galaxy, seeing that it would have been organized only 3 billion years after the Big Bang, that Young Xulon Creationists look at our galaxy and say that we don’t exist?
