wow good collection…

we may/maynt be able to travel in past…bt our eyes hav alredy become capable of doing soo..

V kno that Light year is distance travelled by light in a year….also suppose thru radiotelescope one visualises a light ..it must hav taken many light years to reach us… So the actual phenomenon we r watching wit help of developed telescopes hav alredy occured & hence v can c past…

Nw scientists r trying to find out galaxies wit this knowledge which r of similar as earth or may be older than earth…once we find this v can follow up that body ( of our or different galaxy) to make out how earth actually evolved….

& alredy they hav sent powerfull radiowave/microwave telescopes to outer space….
