In a galaxy far, far away
WASHINGTON- Snapshots of never-before-seen galaxies created more than 13 billion years ago were captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.
Experts say it was so long ago, the Hubble was never supposed to see the cluster of baby stars.
Astronomers say the new pictures show a universe about 500 million years after the Big Bang, when most of the galaxies were about one percent of the size of the Milky Way.
Astronomer Garth Illingworth of the University of California Santa Cruz says there's a surprise in the images.
He says most of the galaxies are dwarfs but some grew faster and are brighter than predicted.
