You ever hear from someone that humans shouldn’t be so convinced they are that important in the vast sphere of the universe, that we shouldn’t be earth-centric?

It turns out, according to researchers from the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, that the galaxies orbiting our own Milky Way galaxy are some of the oldest galaxies in the entire universe.

The researchers theorize that Segue-1, Bootes I, Tucana II and Ursa Major were some of the initial galaxies ever formed, roughly 13 billion years old.

As Phys.org writes, hydrogen atoms congealed to make clouds, then become "halos" of dark matter. The gas inside the halos became unstable and began to become stars which can be found in the nearby galaxies. Once the stars were created, light was brought to the universe.
