Webb space telescope has just imaged another most-distant galaxy, breaking its record after a week

Astronomers using the James Webb Space Telescope have spotted what they think may be the farthest galaxy ever seen — a distant red smudge 35 billion light-years away.

The galaxy, named CEERS-93316, was pictured as it existed just 235 million years after the big Bangusing Webb’s Near Infrared Camera, which can peer back in time to the earliest flickerings of the very first stars.
