In a new episode of The Michael Medved Show, Dr. Stephen Meyer discusses a fascinating new telescope from NASA designed to detect the very first visible light of the universe. The author of Return of the God Hypothesis explains why the venture should yield exciting and extraordinary results.
“It’s going to be looking for light coming from the very first galaxies, the galaxies that would have formed about 13.5 billion years ago, about 300 thousand years after the Big Bang; so this is the first visible light that would be emanating from anything in the universe. It’s an extremely exciting venture to see that far back in time, but also, if the light reveals the signature that the astronomers are looking for, it could provide further and very dramatic confirmation of the Big Bang theory with its idea of an expanding universe.”Stephen C. Meyer
