Astronomers Spot Faintest Galaxy Ever Using Keck Telescope

Kudos to the scientists for this amazing accomplishment. 

Since a light year is six trillion miles, and we’re speaking about six trillion times 13 billion, it’s fair to say that we cannot comprehend the idea of 13 billion light years; at least I can’t. It’s difficult to imagine that we can see that far, even with a gravitational telescope.

Scientists say this image of this tiny galaxy will assist us in understanding how the universe began. Do we really want to know?

If we could travel the 13 billion light years to reach this galaxy, what would we find?
