A release from the Pune-based Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics said a global team led by IUCAA scientists have achieved the major breakthrough. “Indias first multi-wavelength satellite, which has five unique X-ray and ultraviolet telescopes working in tandem, AstroSat, has detected extreme-UV light from a galaxy, called AUDFs01, 9.3 billion light-yearsaway from Earth.The first multi-wavelength satellite of India has five unique X-ray and UV telescopes. They detect extreme UV light from galaxies that are billion light years away from the earth. It is an IRS class satellite. IRS is Indian Remote Sensing Satellite. The NASA Hubble Space Telescope is larger than the UV Imaging Telescope (UVIT). However, it did not detect UV emission from the galaxy as it is too faint. On the other hand, the UVIT was able to achieve the detection as the background noise in the UVIT detector is much less than that on the HST.
