Astronomers have spotted two of what may be the most distant galaxies they’ve ever seen lurking in early images from NASA’s newest space telescope.

James Webb Space TelescopeHis early scientific work includes a program called the Grism Lens Enhanced Survey from Space, or GLASS. Through GLASS, astronomers are closely studying the galaxy cluster Abell 2744, which is so massive that its gravity can warp the space around it and act like gravitational lens to zoom in on the much more distant galaxies beyond.
