Yeah, I was about to mention that, but whatever, easy mistake to make when there's so many other topics to get back to recently.

12.8 Billion years ago, this explosion occurred.
But, seeing as the technology level we are at still restricts us immensely, the ability to observe something at 12.8 billion light years distance, is incredible.

There is just an information overload. We have a hard time picking through all of it to find what is relevant. And when you have dial-up, it takes a loooooooooong time. You are right, finding something that far away IS incredible.
