James Webb Space Telescope Finds Ancient Galaxy
The James Webb telescope has just started and is already setting records: it has photographed what is believed to be the oldest known galaxy. A few million years after the Big Bang and long before our solar system, a galaxy is said to have formed, as recorded by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). It is said to be the oldest star system discovered to date.
