Scientists Have Found The Farthest Thing Humans Can See
The Hubble Telescope has seen the farthest thing humans have ever seen and it's not the government's long-term economic plan.
A new galaxy 13.4 billion light years away has been found by scientists which could basically alter our understanding of how the universe came to be. Apparently, it's so big it's shouldn't have even been a possibility when the universe was so young.
The light left the galaxy when the universe was barely evolved, and the light came 400 millions years following the big bang, a fact which massively helps scientists in studying the actual beginning and formation of the universe.

"We've taken a major step back in time," said Dr Pascal Oesch of Yale University. "Beyond what we'd ever expected to be able to do with Hubble. We managed to look back in time to measure the distance to a galaxy when the universe was only 3% of its current age."
The galaxy, known as GN-z11, while growing rapidly, is said to be 25 times smaller than the Milky Way. It's churning out new stars 20 times faster than our own galaxy does.
