It is a new milestone in the discovery of space. Scientists may have glimpsed some of the oldest material in the Universe. according to one studyyet to be reviewed, researchers found an unidentified object nearly 13.5 billion light-years away.

This one is nearly the age of the universe itself, meaning the object, dubbed HD1, is likely a particularly distant galaxy.

NASA, on March 23, promised an "exciting discovery" worthy of entering "the record books".

The news came that Hubble had found the most distant and oldest solar system to date. Now there are even more distant discoveries.

HD1: Most distant galaxy ever found

The Universe will be about 14 billion years old. According to Live Science, HD1 will be the oldest object ever captured. According to a Harvard researcher, this object could reveal many others that are part of the birth of the universe itself.

The first galaxies formed about a hundred million years after the Big Bang. They were a millionth the mass of the Milky Way and much denser.

One way to think of these objects is as if they were building blocks in the blueprint for the formation of current galaxies, such as our own Milky Way.

He said Avi Loeba Harvard professor who set out to capture high-resolution images of UFOs.

There were two ideas for defining HD1: it could be a starburst galaxy, which is making stars at a high rate and could be home to the first stars in the universe; or the object could contain a supermassive black hole about 100 million times the mass of the Sun.

If HD1 is a black hole, we should see X-ray emission from it. If we don't find X-rays, the emission must originate from massive stars.

Said Avi Loeb.

Fortunately, there is a new worker asset we can count on to bring us news of the new discovery.

So the researchers hope to get images and details about HD1 from NASA's largest and most powerful telescope - the James Webb Space Telescope.
