A worldwide group that made the revelation was driven by Dr. Kanak Saha, partner teacher of stargazing at the IUCAA, included researchers from India, France, Switzerland, the USA, Japan and The Netherlands. The group, through AstroSat, watched the system, which is situated in the Hubble Extreme Deep field.
Considering it a significant achievement by IUCAA researchers, the Pune-based Inter-University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics, in a delivery stated, “India’s first multi-frequency satellite, which has five exceptional X-beam and bright telescopes working couple, AstroSat, has recognized outrageous UV light from a cosmic system, called AUDFs01, 9.3 billion ight-years from Earth.”
