WOW! Is this Big Bang coming back to us...?
What we are looking now is begining and that is incredible.
And I will quote this just because it's so strong and true.
"Our observations shows us that even the Hubble Space Telescope is only seeing the tip of the iceberg in the distant Universe"
Yes indeed, and not only explosions, life too and what about things that we will maybe never see and understand.

cool, thanks for that post!
People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Can this be interpreted by ancient civilizations as a new interest for the gods as a new begining? The end of this cycle and a becoming of another? Maybe This doesn't mean we will perish but that we are no longer protected. The prophecies may be prophecising the end our history and a becoming of a new, we will be universally forgotten; a failed project.
None of us will ever be raptured, but our genetics will.
I don't understand ragged...
The explosion we saw happened more than 13 Billion years ago.
We're only just able to see it because the light has had to literally travel the length of the Universe to reach us. It's an amazing thing really. Given how early this was, it could have been one of the first events leading to a GRB.
A God/alien species would hhave seen this explosion in the past and had the knowledge to estimate how m h Tim was needed for the light to reach us and unturned give the ancestors of the gods/aliens a heads up to move on which like us may have been documented in their ancient text as well just with a more accurate understanding. That explosion is a big deal to a creator of civilizations which may have been expected in anticipation throughout generations
Because of how GRB work, it's a kinda unlikely scenario. If we were say, several thousand light years to the left, we probably would never have detected this, as it needs to be aiming directly at us, so there are a hell of a lot more GRB's that we are capable of detecting at the moment.
That, and they're pretty common, we detect roughly 1 per day.
The reality of how they appears is not even close to that "artist" impression, this is what this particular Gamma ray burst looked like.
One thing to note is that this is no longer the most distance object we've ever detected. It was, and still remains the most distance GRB, but now we have detected this, UDFy-38135539 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and that is only the farthest confirmed, it is in competition with this: UDFj-39546284 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, which we haven't confirmed yet.
Such a tiny, small species. Space is so big. I don't think we're special.
Well played Xenophon, well played. Lol, good arguement.
Sorry bout your name my phone spellcheck changes words behind my back
Haha it's fine. I respect you idea though, it is an interesting one.
So that means the Universe just after the GRB was a big light show, and no doubt it is right now.
