Astronomers Set a New Galaxy Distance Record

An international team of astronomers, led by Yale University and University of California scientists, has pushed back the cosmic frontier of galaxy exploration to a time when the universe was only 5 percent of its present age of 13.8 billion years. The team discovered an exceptionally luminous galaxy more than 13 billion years in the past and determined its exact distance from Earth using the combined data from NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, and the Keck I 10-meter telescope at the W.

The galaxy existed so long ago, it appears to be only 100 million years old.

A quick reference for all you aspiring photogs out there.
Learning even just the basics of photography takes a bit of work and one of the more complex ideas is the relationship between ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. German photography blog Photoblog Hamburg has a graphic explaining how it works.
