Feast Your Eyes on One of the Most Distant (Known) Galaxies in the Universe

This galaxy is so distant that light first shone from it when the universe was a mere 500 MILLION years old. It may provide some valuable answers to astronomers about the transitional period between the dark and colorless early universe to a modern cosmic expanse filled with the light of trillions of stars -- with brilliant nebulae looming through stellar nurseries and an untold number of planets that circle alien suns.
