Astronomers have confirmed that an exploding star spotted by Nasa's Swift satellite is the most distant cosmic object to be detected by telescopes. In the journal Nature, two teams of astronomers report their observations of a gamma-ray burst from a star that died 13.1 billion light-years away.

That long-ago, massive Star...must have been the size of the MilkyWay Galactic center Black Hole...

but that seems impossible because the OP burst was so very soon after the BigBang (creation) itself,


we definitely need to refine either the BigBang or the timeline of massive Star formation into a BH or Quasar metamorphsis.


thanks for the heads up

Seems like every thing in the univers is blowing up, where is the creation or evolution of progress at ?

Stars blowing up IS creation. Elements that would otherwise not exist, i.e. carbon, silicon, pretty much everything heavier than H, are the products of stars and their life-cycles, IIRC.

There's a cool vid somewhere out there that explains how we're all made of stardust.
