NASA has a first close look at the distant galaxy of the dawn of the universe



Astronomers have seen the most distant galaxy as more than just a red dot. NASA's Hubble telescope captured an image of the young galaxy SPT0615-JD, which existed more than 13 billion years ago.

Although astronomers have observed some galaxies at this distance, they have only appeared as small red pin pricks. A strange phenomenon called gravitational lens has allowed astronomers to see this ancient galaxy bigger and brighter than any other from this distance.
