James Webb Space Telescope Discovers Tiny Primal Galaxy Packing Big Star-Forming Punch

Astronomers used the James Webb Space Telescope to look more than 13 billion years into the past to find a unique, tiny galaxy that could help astronomers learn more about galaxies that were present soon after the Big Bang. (Image credit: ESA/Webb, NASA and CSA, P. Kelly)

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has discovered a tiny galaxy in the early universe that is rapidly expanding as it forms stars at a breakneck pace, revealing more about the ancestors of galaxies such as ours.

THE galaxycalled RX J2129-z95, is seen at a red shift of 9.51. This number, which refers to the extent to which the galaxy’s light has been stretched by the expansion of the universemeans that we see it as it existed barely 510 million years after the big Bang.
