Written by Sgt. Samantha Stoffregen
1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (AA) Public Affairs

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – The actions of one man in Se San, Cambodia, would remain unknown to everyone but the men he saved that day in 1970, until a fellow Vietnam veteran and 101st Association columnist would stumble across a citation 25 years later in 1999.

That citation, outlining the life saving actions performed by Sgt. Leslie H. Sabo Jr. on May 10th, 1970, would eventually lead to Sabo being posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor April 16th, 2012, by President Barrack Obama.

Three years after being posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, Sabo is honored here on Fort Campbell for his courageous actions.

Maj. Gen. Gary J. Volesky, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell, assists George H. Sabo, brother of Sgt. Leslie H. Sabo Jr., unveil the plaque that will hang in the new Sabo Physical Fitness Center on Fort Campbell during the dedication ceremony Sept. 9, 2015. Sabo served with 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st, during the Vietnam War. While he was killed in action in May 1970, his actions and memory are honored through his receiving the Medal of Honor in 2012 and this building dedication. (Sgt.

NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes find Faintest Galaxy ever discovered

 

Written by Ray Villard
Space Telescope Science Institute

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationBaltimore, MD – Astronomers harnessing the combined power of NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes have found the faintest object ever seen in the early universe. It existed about 400 million years after the big bang, 13.8 billion years ago.

The team has nicknamed the object Tayna, which means “first-born” in Aymara, a language spoken in the Andes and Altiplano regions of South America.

Though Hubble and Spitzer have detected other galaxies that are record-breakers for distance, this object represents a smaller, fainter class of newly-forming galaxies that until now have largely evaded detection.

This is a Hubble Space Telescope view of a very massive cluster of galaxies, MACS J0416.1-2403, located roughly 4 billion light-years away and weighing as much as a million billion suns. The inset is an image of an extremely faint and distant galaxy that existed only 400 million years after the big bang. Hubble captured it because the gravitational lens makes the galaxy appear 20 times brighter than normal. (NASA, ESA, and L. Infante (Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile))
