NASA scientists said an infrared telescope peered deep into stardust and spotted hidden galaxies more than 11 billion light-years from Earth.
Actually they're not invisible, it just that dust absorbs visible light much easier than IR.
"We are seeing galaxies that are essentially invisible,"
In other words we see this galaxy as it was 11 billion years ago.
