Using the Surface Brightness Fluctuation technique (SBF), IAC researchers have succeeded in detecting galaxies beyond Hubble's photometric detection limit. These new detections are fundamental for obtaining accurate information about the number of weak galaxies. This number is vital for Cosmology and for the theory of galaxy formation and evolution.
