Hubble spots distant galaxies near edge of universe's cosmic dawn
Squinting deep into the universe, the Hubble Space Telescope has picked out what may be the most distant galaxy yet found, observed as it looked about 380 million years after the big bang. This potential record-breaker is one of seven newly discovered galaxies formed more than 13 billion years ago, near the cosmic dawn, the era when the first big galaxies formed.
