Scientists report that a new celestial wonder is crowned as the most distant object ever seen in the universe.



Researchers claim they’ve spotted a galaxy so far away, which is actually the most distant ever been discovered yet. This information, will definitely contribute to science on the other hand the insight about the universe itself.

Spectroscopic analysis say that the galaxy, (this tecnique allows the astronomers to look for chemical signatures of elements) called, z8_GND_5296, is the most remote star system that has ever been confirmed.

Odd-named galaxy is also a window into the past and because of its distance; it shows what things would have been like 700 million years after the Big Bang. 700 million years after the start is very early comparing to the real age of our universe, 13.8 billion years. One very essential information about the galaxy dazzles the astronomers; star-formation rate is measured by how much raw hydrogen the galaxy converts into new stars every year and it is the amount of 300 times the mass of sun into new stars each year.
