JWST captures galaxies from the baby universe

JWST captures galaxies from the baby universe, A new study led by the James Webb Space Telescope has discovered two galaxies that date back just 300 million years after the Big Bang.

Using the JWST space telescope, this new discovery of a pair of galaxies breaks the record set by another pair of galaxies that was discovered by the JWST last year. As a matter of fact, some of these galaxies date back to the time when the universe was around 330 million years old. As a result, we are further pushed back in our understanding of cosmic dawn.

JADES-GS-z14-0 and JADES-GS-z14-1 are both exceptionally old galaxies and they are also unusually large for an early stage of cosmic history. The discovery papers published on May 28 to the preprint server arXiv explain that in addition to being exceptionally old, these galaxies also are exceptionally large for such an early time in cosmic history.

Stefano Carniani, an assistant professor at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa and a lead study author on the study, shared his thoughts on how impressive it is that the Universe can form such a gigantic galaxy in only 300 million years.
