Astronomers Discover The Oldest Galaxy Yet

Some astronomers using the Hubble Telescope recently found a galaxy with the greatest redshift that's ever been recorded. Using the redshift pattern as a guide, they were able to determine that the age of this galaxy was born only 500 million years after the big bang. It's roughly 13.2 billion light-years away.

Imagine, driving a car that went 671 million miles per hour and driving it for 13.2 billion years. I ask you, might that not as well be forever? Some things are just unthinkable.
