Australian scientists have dated a
star thought to be the oldest yet dis-
covered, and it s right in our neigh-
The star, which has been given the
name SMSS J031300.36-670839.3, is
thought by a team of astronomers at
the Australia National University to be
13.6 billion years old.
The star itself is not a new discov-
ery---it is faintly visible on existing pho-
tographic maps of the southern sky. But
the recent dating places it as older than
any other celestial body previously found.

The star is part of our Milky Way
galaxy and only around 6,000 light
years from Earth, relatively close
in astronomical terms.
Stefan Keller, a research fellow
at ANU s Research School of
Astronomy and Astrophysics, pub-
lished the findings in the scientific
"Stars act as time capsules,"
Keller told CNN. "This one took a
little sample of the universe at the
time that is was formed ... and
means we can study (what the early
universe was like) in great detail."
The discovery of the star s age---
which dates it at only a hundred
million years younger than scientific
estimates of the age of the universe
itself---is significantly older than
any previously dated stars. The old-
est celestial bodies discovered thus
far have been 13.2 billion years old.
Keller and his team used the
SkyMapper telescope to find ancient
stars as part of an ongoing project
to produce the first digital map of
the southern sky.
The team used a technique for
imaging stars to ascertain how
much iron was present---the
younger a star, the greater the
amounts of iron it had. The
SkyMapper telescope is unique in
its ability to find stars with low
iron, which uses sophisticated filters
to measure the colour of the stars,
a key indicator of iron levels.
"The stars we are finding number
one in a million," said team member
Mike Bessell on the University s
The team looked at 60 million
stars and narrowed down potential
candidates to a shortlist of 200,
which were examined using the
Magellan telescope in Chile.
It is an important cosmological
discovery, as it tells researchers
about the origin of the elements
that make up the universe. CNN
