New mark for oldest, furthest galaxy

Further and further away we go. When it will end, nobody knows.

-----------------------------------------------

Astronomers have caught a glimpse of a galaxy that sets a new record for the furthest, and thus oldest, yet discovered - 13.3 billion light years from Earth.

The star cluster was observed in its infancy - as it looked when the universe was just three per cent of its present age, according to NASA and the European Space Agency.

"We see the newly discovered galaxy, named MACS0647-JD, as it was 420 million years after the Big Bang" that created the Universe 13.7 billion years ago, a statement says.

"Its light has traveled 13.3 billion years to reach Earth."
