Brilliant! Hats off to the scientists, engineers and technicians involved.

What is amazing about about the universe is that 300,000 is just a tiny number.

There are at least 100 billion galaxies in the known universe, so it's just a small addition. And still, if scientists can find 300,000 AT ONCE, it makes you wonder how many more there are out there !

Damn, the universe is awesome !

I dunno. When meeting an electron, is it rude to ask its age?

Even with these newly discovered 300,000 galaxies, we're still seeing only an infinitesimal number of all the galaxies in the boundless universe. Some people may say the universe is not boundless. if so, where it stops, what, there's nothing? Nah, it's boundless.

For now.

Some galaxies we may never see since they're moving away from us faster than the speed of light, so the light from those far-away galaxies can never catch up to us

So we can only know the sphere section of the universe that we can see - what's beyond that sphere section, we don't know those parts of the universe
