    At the risk of duplicating a topic, did other people see this
    spectacular photo that was doing the rounds about a fortnight ago? See it here.

    Blurry. Horizon's squint and I don't feel the composition sits well with the subject matter.

    Oh and it cost several Billion Dollars to end up with this image...I think I can see a guy playing a banjo in the top upper left section.

    And I'm sure they would not have stooped so low as to tamper with the original image either.

    Money well spent.

    Quote: Astronomers think that B1509 is about 1,700 years old and it is located about 17,000 light years away.

    Soooo............... how come we can see it ?

    If it came into being 1,700 years ago and it's 17, 000 light years away then we shouldn't see the image for another 15,300 years.

    *puzzled*

    its around 1700 years old at the time we see it I think it what they mean. Its state now is likley to be very different. So the object itself is no longer (likley) in the same form/shape

    Technically speaking we are seeing it as it was 17,000 years ago.

    Which means 17,000 light years ago it was 1700 years old Wink So in 17,000 years we would see the light from it as it was today Smile

    Erm I thinks Smile

    I love the way they say:


    Quote: known as PSR B1509-58, or B1509 for short.

    Personally I'd just call it B.
