New Galaxy HD1 Discovered

Astronomers have discovered a new Galaxy named HD1 which existed when the Universe was just 330 million years old. This new Galaxy is located at about 13.5 billion light-years away, which may be home to the oldest stars in the Universe. It is extremely bright in Ultraviolet light, as said by Dr. Fabio Pacucci, an astronomer at the Harvard & Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the Black Hole initiative at Harvard University.

A recent article published by Sci-News, dated 8th April 2022 details the newly discovered Galaxy HD1. It is mentioned in the article that at first Dr. Pacucci and his colleagues assumed HD1 was a standard Starbust Galaxy, which creates stars at a high rate. But they calculated how many stars HD1 was producing and found that HD1 would be forming more than 100 stars every single year.

Professor Avi Loeb, an Astronomer at the Harvard & Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics mentioned that the HD1 would represent a giant baby in the delivery room of the early Universe. The discovery is described in two papers published in the Astrophysical Journal and the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society Letters.
