Hubble's Deepest View of Universe Unveils Never-Before-Seen Galaxies

U.S. and European scientists say the upgraded Hubble space telescope has spotted the oldest galaxies ever seen

U.S. and European scientists say the upgraded Hubble space telescope has spotted the oldest galaxies ever seen.

The new cameras installed on Hubble earlier this year took pictures of thousands of galaxies formed less than one billion years after the Big Bang - the massive explosion that many scientists say formed our universe.

The galaxies are about 13 billion light years from Earth.

Experts say the new infrared cameras that astronauts placed on Hubble will let them peer even further back in time, when the universe was in its infancy
