Telescope spies never-before-seen galaxies

The refurbished U.S. Hubble Space Telescope has spotted what may be the oldest galaxies yet.

The image released Tuesday by NASA was captured this summer by Hubble's newly installed wide field camera. The new camera allows the telescope to peer deeper into the cosmos and understand how galaxies formed in the universe's early history.

Astronomers said the galaxies in the image formed 600 million years after the Big Bang, which scientists think led to the creation of the universe.
