This is one of the youngest galaxies in the distant universe. Тhere are discovered stars that formed 13.5 billion years ago,it’s only  a 200 million years after the Big Bang.The Hubble Space Telescope was the first telescope that made these images of the galaxy.More detailed images from the Keck Observatory show  that the observed galaxy light appeared  when the universe was only 950million years, the universe was formed about 13.7 billion years ago. Scientists think that these data can help answer questions about when the first galaxies arose, and how to develop the early universe.

The researchers said that this may help in solving the mystery of how the hydrogen fog, which was filled with the early universe, participated in the formation of stars and galaxies.In essence, galaxies, such as this are very weak and difficult to view, but in this case, the image of the galaxy is improving due to the gravity of a massive cluster of galaxies, parked in front of it,making it 11 times brighter. This phenomenon is called GRAVITATIONAL LENSING”.
