Using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have found a surprisingly bright, infant galaxy 13.4 billion light-years from us, making it the most distant galaxy ever detected.

 This galaxy, dubbed GN-z11, is located in the direction of the constellation Ursa Major. It is approximately 25 times smaller than the Milky Way Galaxy and has just 1% of our galaxy’s mass in stars.
