Infrared view of Maisie's Galaxy, one of the most distant galaxies ever seen

This infrared image from Webb Space Telescope shows one of the oldest galaxies ever discovered. Known as Maisie's Galaxy, we see it as it looked roughly 400 million years after the Big Bang. It is less massive than our home galaxy, the Milky Way, but it is giving birth to many more stars. [NASA/STScI/CEERS/TACC/Univ. of Texas at Austin/S. Finkelstein/M. Bagley]
