NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes have spotted the most distant galaxy ever seen and studied by astronomers. Light from this faint and small galaxy, captured by the two orbiting observatories, first shone when our universe was just 490 million years old, when it began to transit from the so-called cosmic dark ages. The galaxy, called MACS1149-JD1, has been discovered by an international team of astronomers, including Massimo Meneghetti and Mario Nonino of INAF (the Nationa Institute of Astrophysics).
