A massive explosion was detected near the oldest galaxy in the universe
The luster of the explosion in the scientifically known galaxy known as (GN-z11) was observed by Chinese researchers in cooperation with their colleagues at the Keck Observatory in the US state of Hawaii, and the Chinese researcher (Linhua Jiang) said that it is the oldest galaxy in the universe, about which scientists have not known much information until now .
And the researchers suggest that the blast's flash is a gamma-ray burst, which is an explosion of a huge amount of energy that has been observed before in other galaxies.
This explosion usually occurs in massive stars that are in the supernova stage, which is the last stage in the star's life.
The researchers noted that this luminosity increased hundreds of times within 3 minutes and then disappeared, and it is likely that this explosion took only 20 seconds in that galaxy which is 32 billion light years away from our planet.
This scientific discovery confirms that galaxies far from our galaxy are experiencing greater mobility than before.
And the Chinese researcher explained that this is a very rare event and it is surprising that a gamma ray burst can be detected every million years in any galaxy by a small percentage.
Researchers are working to explain this phenomenon in order to determine the cause, which some consider impossible as the event has passed.
