Recently, using the Hubble Space Telescope researchers discovered galaxy GN-z11. Light from this galaxy traveled for 13.4 billion years to reach us. We are seeing GN-z11 as it existed when the universe was only 400 million years old. Because the universe itself is expanding faster than the speed of light, study coauthor Pascal Oesch of Yale University expects this galaxy to be ‘about 32 billion light-years away’ from us right now. Because this galaxy is so unexpectedly bright, it challenges some of our current theoretical models for the build-up of galaxies.
