Zoom Forward 64 Galaxies Near and Far

If you do not “Zoom Forward” in your Spiritual Life and prepare for your departure from this Earth Life, then you have made a very grievous mistake. There is more to your Life than the people and things of this Earth Life…
*
Regardless of who you are; or who you think you are and likewise concerning what you have or what you think you have and you can place any name or anything in the equation: If you are not extremely careful; you will spend your entire life focused on the people and things surrounding you and they will absorb, deceive and trick you so much, you will miss out towards seeking the Lord.
*
Your life on earth is only a “limited amount of time”; then you pass away into the eternal state, into infinity, through the:  Gate of Eternity  for better or worse!!!
*
Be wise and seek the Lord while you have “time”.
*
You need to buy up, that is, make better use of the “time in your life” as to being rich toward God with whatever “time you have”; because there is a limited amount of the “time in your life” and you cannot buy/get it back, once it is gone!!!
*
There will be a “time in your life” that your soul will be required of you; and you are powerless to stop it from leaving your earth body.

Luke 12: [13] And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. [14] And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? [15] And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. [16] And he spoke a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: [17] And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? [18] And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. [19] And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. [20] But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? [21] So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

The following are about the Universe. There is a life beyond Earth. As people upon this Earth; the great majority of humanity has been deceived by people and things; as if this is all of our existence. Perhaps this page will be helpful to someone; towards helping you to awaken to the reality of Life after this Earth Life…

As you can see from the many objects in the Universe; it is so ironic, we as human beings think all there is in life, is OUR PRESENT state of existence. Wow!!! What a mistake all of us have made!!! Life deceives and tricks us so much!!!

A new analysis of distant galaxies imaged by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows that they are extremely young and share some remarkable similarities to “green peas,” a rare class of small galaxies in our cosmic backyard.

“With detailed chemical fingerprints of these early galaxies, we see that they include what might be the most primitive galaxy identified so far. At the same time, we can connect these galaxies from the dawn of the universe to similar ones nearby, which we can study in much greater detail,” said James Rhoads, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, who presented the findings at the 241st meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Seattle.

A paper describing the results, led by Rhoads, was published Jan. 3 in The Astrophysical Journal Letters.

A trio of faint objects (circled) captured in the James Webb Space Telescope’s deep image of the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723 exhibit properties remarkably similar to rare, small galaxies called “green peas” found much closer to home. The cluster’s mass makes it a gravitational lens, which both magnifies and distorts the appearance of background galaxies. We view these early peas as they existed when the universe was about 5% its current age of 13.8 billion years. The farthest pea, at left, contains just 2% the oxygen abundance of a galaxy like our own and might be the most chemically primitive galaxy yet identified.

Green pea galaxies were discovered and named in 2009 by volunteers taking part in Galaxy Zoo, a project where citizen scientists help classify galaxies in images, starting with those from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Peas stood out as small, round, unresolved dots with a distinctly green shade, a consequence of both the colors assigned to different filters in the survey’s composite images and a property of the galaxies themselves.

Green pea galaxy colors are unusual because a sizable fraction of their light comes from brightly glowing gas clouds. The gases emit light at specific wavelengths – unlike stars, which produce a rainbow-like spectrum of continuous color. Peas are also quite compact, typically only about 5,000 light-years across or about 5% the size of our Milky Way galaxy.

“Peas may be small, but their star-formation activity is unusually intense for their size, so they produce bright ultraviolet light,” said Keunho Kim, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cincinnati and a member of the analysis team. “Thanks to ultraviolet images of green peas from Hubble and ground-based research on early star-forming galaxies, it’s clear that they both share this property.”

At left is J122051+491255, a green pea about 170 million light-years away that’s about 4,000 light-years across, a typical size. At right is an early pea known as 04590, whose light has taken 13.1 billion years to reach us. Compensating for the cluster’s gravitational lensing effect and the galaxy’s greater distance to us, 04590 is even more compact, comparable to the smallest nearby green peas.

In July 2022, NASA and its partners in the Webb mission released the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe yet seen, capturing thousands of galaxies in and behind a cluster known as SMACS 0723. The cluster’s mass makes it a gravitational lens, which both magnifies and distorts the appearance of background galaxies. Among the faintest galaxies behind the cluster were a trio of compact infrared objects that looked like they could be distant relatives of green peas. The most distant of these three galaxies was magnified by about 10 times, providing a significant assist from nature on top of the telescope’s unprecedented capabilities.

Webb did more than image the cluster – its Near-Infrared Spectrograph (NIRSpec) instrument also captured the spectra of selected galaxies in the scene. When Rhoads and his colleagues examined these measurements and corrected them for the wavelength stretch resulting from the expansion of space, they saw characteristic features emitted by oxygen, hydrogen, and neon line up in a stunning resemblance to those seen from nearby green peas.

Additionally, the Webb spectra made it possible to measure the amount of oxygen in these cosmic dawn galaxies for the first time.

The James Webb Space Telescope’s Near-Infrared Spectrograph captured the chemical fingerprints of selected galaxies behind SMACS 0723, including three faint, distant objects. When corrected for the wavelength stretch caused by the expansion of space over billions of years, the spectra of these galaxies (shown in red) exhibit features emitted by oxygen, hydrogen, and neon that show a stunning resemblance to those seen from so-called green pea galaxies found nearby (in green). Additionally, the Webb observations made it possible to measure the amount of oxygen in these cosmic dawn galaxies for the first time. The spectral lines have been stretched vertically in order to clarify these relationships.

As stars produce energy, they transmute lighter elements like hydrogen and helium into heavier ones. When stars explode or lose their outer layers at the ends of their lives, these heavier elements become incorporated into the gas that forms the next stellar generations, and the process continues. Over cosmic history, stars have steadily enriched the universe.

Two of the Webb galaxies contain oxygen at about 20% of the level in our Milky Way. They resemble typical green peas, which nevertheless make up less than 0.1% of the nearby galaxies observed by the Sloan survey. The third galaxy studied is even more unusual.

“We’re seeing these objects as they existed up to 13.1 billion years ago, when the universe was about 5% its current age,” said Goddard researcher Sangeeta Malhotra. “And we see that they are young galaxies in every sense – full of young stars and glowing gas that contains few chemical products recycled from earlier stars. Indeed, one of them contains just 2% the oxygen of a galaxy like our own and might be the most chemically primitive galaxy yet identified.”

NIRSpec was built for ESA (European Space Agency) by Airbus Industries. Its array of nearly half a million microshutters – tiny doors that can be opened or closed to admit or block light – allow it to capture spectra of up to 100 individual objects at a time. The microshutter array and detector subsystems were fabricated by NASA.

The James Webb Space Telescope, an international mission led by NASA with its partners ESA and CSA (Canadian Space Agency), is the world’s premier space science observatory. NASA Headquarters oversees the mission for the agency’s Science Mission Directorate. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center manages Webb for the agency and oversees work on the mission performed by the Space Telescope Science Institute, Northrop Grumman, and other mission partners. In addition to Goddard, several NASA centers contributed to the project, including the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley, and others.

Your Life is immensely short; at the very most, perhaps nearly 100 years. The age of the Earth is about 4.5 billion years. Most Galaxies are estimated to be 10.0 to 13.6 billion years old; with the { Milky Way Galaxy } having about 100 to 400 billion stars, is a very old galaxy; at about 13.6 billion years. There are several of the oldest known stars in the Universe within the Milky Way Galaxy: 1. { HD 140283 } (also known as the Methuselah star; about 12.0 to 13.7 billion years.)  and 2. { List of Oldest Stars } in the Galaxy. There are numerous galaxies in the { Local Group of Galaxies }; although the exact number of galaxies in the Local Group is unknown, as some are occluded by the Milky Way; however, at least 80 members are known, most of which are { Dwarf Galaxies }; which is part of the { Laniakea Supercluster }, containing approximately 100,000 other galaxies. In March 2019, astronomers reported that the { Virial Mass } of the Milky Way Galaxy is 1.54 trillion { Solar Masses }, suggesting that about 90% of the mass of the galaxy is { Dark Matter }. There are estimated to be about 10 million { Superclusters } in the { Universe }.The Universe, having upwards to about 2 trillion { Galaxies } ; being about 13.8 billion years. There are { Dark Galaxies } that are almost void of stars and made up of mostly Dark Matter, such as the { Dragonfly 44 Galaxy }. There are a countless number  of { Cosmic Structures } within the Universe; including things, such as { Black Holes }; { Nebulas }; { Exoplanets }; { Cosmic Voids }; { Quasars }; { Pulsars }; and many trillions of other { Astronomical Objects }. All of this material makes up only about 5% of existence, as we understand it to be!!! The other 95% is { Dark Matter } and { Dark Energy } or substance beyond the elements of which we know as the Earth and the Universe.
*
There are currently slightly over 8 billion people in the world; and throughout the history of humanity, there are estimates to have been about 110 billion people, who have been born, lived and died on earth.In other words, your life; all of the foolish events that occur throughout the worldwide entertainment industry; the massive (propaganda) fake news media; the many areas of political and social agenda’s that twist and turn like the wind; and yes, even sports programs that last for a moment and are nothing more than a distraction, then vanishes away like a small vapor and finally; all of the false religions, with their pastors, preachers, priests and leaders; that are virtually beyond number, which deceive the masses; including just the daily aspects of life, that overwhelms society; are merely a fraction of the universal time of infinite existence.
*
My humble suggestion to you: don’t get caught up in all of this type of “nonsense”. It’s simply not worth it and you are wasting your life. Your life is so very, very short!!!
*
My comment to everyone: Be a responsible person, but: Don’t waste your time on all of these “nonsense things”. Once the moments of your life are gone and whatever “time in your life” you have wasted on these “nonsense things”: You cannot get it back. Not one second; not a minute; not an hour; not a day; absolutely nothing!!! It’s gone forever.
*
All you have now is the future. Make the best; or at least, better use of whatever “time you have left”, mostly toward seeking the Lord; by Bible Study, Prayer and Correct Scriptural Worship…
