Most distant galaxy ever discovered in Universe.

FLORIDA (CyHAN)- Astronomers have discovered the most distant galaxy in universe. The ancient group of stars lies 30bn light years from Earth, far beyond the handle of the Big Dipper that traces a celestial saucepan in the constellation of Ursa Major.

According to space analysts it formed only 700m years after the big bang, or 13.1bn years ago, making it the oldest and most distant galaxy known.

Meanwhile, the device picked up light from only one, a galaxy that goes by the cumbersome name of z8_GND_5296, according to a report in the journal Nature.
