India’s first Multi-Wavelength Space Observatory AstroSat detected extreme-UV light from a galaxy located 9.3 billion light-years absent from Soil. The galaxy called AUDFs01 was once discovered by a team of astronomers led by Dr Kanak Saha from the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics(IUCAA) Pune.

India’s AstroSat/UVIT was once ready to succeed in this unique feat because the background noise in the UVIT detector is much less than one on the Hubble Space Telescope of US-based NASA.

India’s first Space Observatory AstroSat, was once launched by the Indian Space Research Association (ISRO) on September 28, 2015.
