Scientists have identified what they believe to be the oldest known super nova,

11 billion years ago the massive star exploded.



The ancient supernova was found after astronomers compared several years of images taken from a portion of the sky, enabling them to look for objects that changed in brightness over time.

The universe is believed to be 13.7 billion years old, so the supernova marks the death of one of earliest stars in creation.

The previous supernova record was an event that happened around six billion years ago.

IMO a portion of the missing mass of the universe is cold dead cinders that reamin of dead stars.

How can this possibly be true, I'm still trying to understand that the earth is allegedly 6,000 years old, so is the earth just the young one and the rest is old, or did God influence the test, to 'test my faith'.
