Record Broken: Hubble Spots Farthest Star Ever Seen | NASA

Record Broken: Hubble Spots Farthest Star Ever Seen | NASA

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has established an extraordinary new benchmark: detecting the light of a star that existed within the first billion years after the universe’s birth in the big bang—the farthest individual star ever seen to date. Its nickname is Earendel.

Launched in 1990, Hubble has observed the universe for nearly 32 years, contributing to incredible discoveries and changing our understanding of astronomy. After upgrades from five servicing missions, Hubble is still going strong. Hubble plans to partner with NASA’s newly launched James Webb Space Telescope to study the sky across ultraviolet, visible, and infrared wavelengths. The two observatories together will investigate distant stars like Earendel, along with galaxies, exoplanets, and our own solar system.
