ŠTALA (STABLE) AT RANCH MRCINA – SPACE TIME MACHINE, TOMAŽ ZWITTER
Some stars are almost as old as the Universe. Like older people, such stars can tell us what it was like in the past. If you turn their present motion in a computer time machine, you can see where they came from. And sometimes we can see stars directly in the young Universe. The Hubble telescope has done this, but the new James Webb telescope and the upcoming ELT are even better.
