Open one of the brightest known to science distant galaxies of the universe

An international team of researchers, led by scientists from the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, IAC) at the University of La Laguna (University of La Laguna, ULL), the two research institutions Spain, opened one of the highlights of "inactive" galaxies in early Universe. Galaxy Detection BG1429 + 1202 is made possible thanks to the "help" on the part of the massive elliptical galaxy, which lies along the line of sight of the space object, which in this case acted as a lens, increasing the brightness of a distant object and distorting its shape observed. These results are part of the project BELLS GALLERY, based on an analysis of more than 1.5 million spectra of galaxies obtained with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (Sloan Digital Sky Survey, SDSS).
