Astronomers have discovered a galaxy far, far away, really far.

FOX's Tom Graham explains:

A galaxy picked up by the Hubble space telescope is estimated to be a whopping 13.4 billion light years away. That's farther than any previously detected by astronomers.

According to a study in the Astrophysical Journal, the imagine captured is about 400 million years after the big bang, when the universe was still in its early stages.

The discovery shatters old records for distance and time and is expected to hold at least until a new space telescope is launched in 2019.
