A tiny galaxy that existed roughly 500 million years after the Big Bang, or more than 13 billion years ago, was recently discovered and seen by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The astronomers found that this tiny galaxy was manufacturing new stars at an alarmingly fast pace given its small size, despite its astonishing distance from Earth.This study holds the potential to not only continue to observe the universe so far back in time, but to also help scientists better understand galaxies that existed so soon after the Big Bang.
