Historical Record of Maximum Redshifts Observed

The historical record of redshift detections. The redshift of the most distant object detected in 3 categories is shown as a function of year. It is seen that gamma-ray bursts have only been found at high redshift in recent years, but are quickly becoming among the most distant objects known in the universe. Courtesy of N. Tanvir.
