The most oldest distant galaxy till date, Scientists discover

GN-z11, the galaxy is 13.4 billion light-years or 134 nonillion kilometers away from us. Astronomers have peered out into the vast expanse and discovered what they believe is the oldest, most distant galaxy till date.

The galaxy has been discovered by an international team of astronomers led by Nobunari Kashikawa, a professor at the department of astronomy at the University of Tokyo.

Kashikawa said “From previous studies, the galaxy GN-z11 seems to be the farthest detectable galaxy from us, at 13.4 billion light years, or 134 nonillion kilometers (that’s 134 followed by 30 zeros). But measuring and verifying such a distance is not an easy task.”

As per the most widely accepted cosmological models, the Universe began with a Bang Bang almost 13.8 billion years ago. The Cosmic Dark Ages began 370 thousand years after this and continued for another 1 billion years.
