Indian scientists claim discovery of galaxy ‘Saraswati’ in universe: Reports

Since the galaxy that has been discovered is far away from earth, the light has taken that much more time to reach Earth

Pune: According to media reports, a team of Indian scientists for the first time in the country, has claimed to have discovered an “extremely large supercluster of galaxies”, Saraswati, in the universe. “Since the light from this galaxy has just reached us, we will be able to study how it (galaxy) was in the past,” is what the scientists have to claim.

This ultra large structure is on the direction of constellation Pisces and 400 billion light years away from Earth, said the reports.

“This is a very high concentration of galaxies in the universe and it is very rare. Few such structures have been observed till now and this is definitely a first from India as all authors are Indians,” Shishir Sankhyayan from IISER, who is a co-author, told the media persons.
