An artist's rendering of the galaxy, known by its catalog name z8_GND_5296, in seen this handout provided by NASA October 23, 2013. Astronomers have found the most distant galaxy yet, a finding that pushes back scientists' view of the universe to about 700 million years after its creation. Light from the galaxy took about 13.1 billion years to reach the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope and the Keck Observatory in Hawaii, both of which detected the galaxy in infrared light.
