A team of Australian scientists have discovered a group of galaxies thought to have existed only in the distant past.
The discovery reported in the journal Nature could improve sciences understanding of how galaxies and stars form.
"Such galaxies were thought to exist only in the distant past, when the Universe was very young".

Dont forget the farther away a telescope looks the farther back in time they look as light takes 1 year to travel 1 lightyear (ly). So if we look at a galaxy 13billion ly away then we are actually looking at the light which took 13billion years to get here, or we are looking at it as it was 13billion years ago. It probably looks nothing like that now and may not even exist anymore!
