Hubble See's 13.2 Billion Years In The Past!

            Nasa has announced on January 5th, 2010, that the Hubble telescope can now see 13.2 billion years, back in time, farther than ever before in space and time, only a mere 6 to 8 million years after the big bang. Nasa is now getting images of primordial galaxies billions of years old. This will show astronomers for the first time how galaxies grew from a small cluster of stars, to the big galaxies you see today. Because light has a speed limit, the farther a object is, the farther back in time we can see, this is how the Hubble can literally see 'Back in time'.
