American scientists, astronomers reported in the media on the opening of seven new galaxies through space telescope "Hubble".

According to information from experts, these galaxies were formed after a short from a scientific point of view, the time after the birth of the universe age of about 13.7 billion years. "These early galaxies are used by some building blocks for today’s galaxies," - said John Gryunsfeld, researcher, head of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA.

He noted at the same time that one of these space objects may be the oldest galaxy, scientists discover that it was not possible until now. It was formed over 380 million years after the universe, while the youngest of the seven newly discovered galaxy was formed only after 600 million years after the Big Bang.

Richard Ellis, a specialist at the California University of Technology, says that this discovery should help scientists learn what was happening in outer space for them in the little-known period or so-called "dark ages". This refers to the length of time after 200 million years after the Big Bang, through which more than 13 billion years ago our universe was born.
