Scientists at the space agency NASA say the Hubble telescope has detected a galaxy 13.4 billion light years away.

It’s the most distant galaxy ever seen through the instrument.

The infant galaxy called GN-Z11 is significant because it gives scientists insight into what the early universe might have looked like.

On Thursday NASA released the first picture of the galaxy.
