Me Being Born
Gravity interacts with light.
This may not sound profound but scientists have learned to do great things with as little as possible.
By looking at the light being stretched by things with lots of gravity (galaxies, stars, etc.), they can watch distant objects passing behind get stretched out.
This technique, called gravitational lensing, is a circumstantial one but cheap and profound.
Recently the combination of our amazing space telescopes and gravitational lensing have found the oldest galaxy ever. It’s called Abell2744 Y1.
Abel2744 Y1 is 13,150,000,000 light years away.
Light from that galaxy has been traveling towards Earth longer than our solar system has existed… more than three times the age of our solar system actually.
