Telescope reveals thousands of star-forming galaxies in early universe

The images capture drama billions of years ago in the early universe — glinting galaxies, glowing with stars that have exploded into supernovas and blazing jets fired from black holes.

Europe’s giant LOFAR radio telescope has detected stars being born in tens of thousands of distant galaxies with unprecedented precision, in a series of studies published on Wednesday.

Using techniques that correspond to a very long exposure and with a field of view about 300 times the size of the full moon, scientists were able to make out galaxies like the Milky Way deep in the ancient universe.
