Quasar Q0055-269

IPCS spectrum of the recently discovered quasar Q0055-269 obtained by A. Boksenberg with the Isaac Newton Telescope and reduced with Starlink facilities. The labelled ticks above the spectrum identify the most prominent ultraviolet emission lines which, in the qusar spectrum, are redshifted into the optical range. The redshift deduced, z=3.68, makes Q0055-269 one of the most distant objects known in the universe. [ TIFF ]
