Hubble Space Telescope Discovers Furthest Object Yet Seen, Sets Cosmic Distance Record

A new image of the most distant galaxy known to exist will offer scientists vital clues into the origins of the universe.

Taken through the Hubble Telescope, the infant galaxy GN-Z11, is located some 13.4 billion light years away, setting a cosmic distance record.

Animation released by NASA offers some perspective on just how far away GN-Z11 is.

The video begins by showing the Big Dipper constellation and moves past the Ursa Major constellation before zooming several times to finally arrive at GN-Z11.

Significant not only because of its remoteness from Earth, the galaxy will be able to offer experts a peek into what the early universe looked like and how it developed.
