The Hubble Space Telescope shows 5,000 ancient sparkling galaxies

Thousands of distant, primordial galaxies of various shapes and sizes glow in infrared light in a newly released image from the Hubble Space Telescope.

The oldest galaxies are about 13 billion years old, dating back only a few hundred million years Big bang. By looking at these galaxies in ultraviolet light, scientists can find out what chemicals are inside these galaxies – information that is key to understanding how galaxies form and evolve. But there is a problem with this method: this primary ultraviolet light is absorbed before it can reach us.
