A team of astronomers discovered the most distant galaxy in the universe which is estimated to be 30 billion light years away from the Earth. The results of the latest findings were published in the most prestigious international journal the Nature. The discovery gives us clues about our Universe Milky Way as well as helping scientists shed light on the period that immediately followed the Big Bang. It was found using the Hubble Space Telescope and its distance was then confirmed with the ground-based Keck Observatory in Hawaii.

This galaxy is forming stars at a fast speed, approximately about 300 Sun-like stars every year. It was compareable with Sun-like star produced in our own Milkyway galaxy. Scientists revealed the possibility that galaxies were more active than they are now when the Universe was young.
