HST goes deeper again

Spotted a headline while quickly browsing Neatorama.

It said that while we're all salivating over JWST news items, ole' trusty Hubble just shattered a record.

See the full article at NASA.

The Hubble Space Telescope spotted the farthest star ever seen.

The newly detected star is 12.9 billion years away. It is from a time when the universe was only 7 percent of its current age. 

That's a redshift value of 6.2.
