The Most Distant Galaxy Anyone Has Ever Seen

What you see here is something further away from you than you've ever glimpsed before. The ESA has released a brand new image of a faraway galaxy, which the agency says just broke all existing cosmic distance records.

Using a new color analysis technique, researchers were able to pinpoint Galaxy GN-z11 as the most remote one they'd ever seen, existing just 400 million years after the Big Bang. That breaks the previous record for most distant galaxy by over 150 million years from the Big Bang.
