Scientists believe they have discovered the most distant galaxy in the universe

Astronomers have looked into the distance and discovered what they believe is the most distant (and oldest) galaxy ever observed.

The galaxy GN-z11 may not have a flashy name, but it appears to be the most distant and oldest galaxy ever discovered, scientists have found. Astronomers, led by Nobunari Kashikawa, professor at the Institute of Astronomy at Tokyo University, embarked on a mission to find the most distant observable galaxy in the universe and learn more about how and when it was formed.
