Submission + - NASA'S Hubble spots most far away galaxy ever (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: Astronomers said they have used the NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to spot a galaxy whose light traveled 13.2 billion years to reach Hubble, about 150 million years longer than the previous record holder.

According to NASA the tiny, dim object is a compact galaxy of blue stars that existed 480 million years after the big bang. More than 100 such mini-galaxies would be needed to make up our Milky Way.
