    The opening scroll to the movies is one you well know.....

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

    Astronomers have found such a galaxy dubbed redshift 11.9

    Cosmologically, the presence of cold white dwarf stars in the SW galaxy would imply the SW universe is much, much older than ours.

    A newborn galaxy would be expected to be very different from the SW one- it takes time for intelligent species to evolve.

    Still, it's interesting news.

    Or:

    Which both mention Fornax in which Han Solo alludes to in the ANH novel "The Fire Rings Of Fornax".

    I knew when I saw this thread and saw DB was the last one posted it was moved from Saga or CT :p

    I bet he's getting mighty sick of moving them by now :p

    Why would they assume it's billions of years old? I'm confused.
