Darkness from the edge of the universe, broadcast on TV.

Working with astronomers from the Mauna Kea Volcano telescope, an image of ‘ancient darkness’ was transmitted on New York television station MNN. Broadcast for one minute, it revealed darkness from the furthest point of the observed universe, 13.2 billion years ago, shortly after the Big Bang and before Earth existed, when stars, galaxies and the first light began to form.
