PKS 1127-145 Absorber Illustration
On their way to Earth, the X-rays from PKS 1127-145 pass through a galaxy located about 4 billion light years from Earth. Atoms of various elements in this galaxy absorb some of the X-rays. By measuring the amount of absorption, astronomers were able to estimate that the intervening galaxy contained only about 20 percent as much oxygen as our Milky Way Galaxy has now.
