    The Hubble Space Telescope has observed the most distant single star ever, shining 28 billion light-years away. Astronomers who located the star say it could be between 50 to 500 times more massive than our sun and millions of times brighter. Being the farthest detection of a star ever made, they nicknamed the star Earendel, originated from an Old English words that means “morning star” or “rising light.”

    According to the study details, the observation could help astronomers to investigate that early years of the universe. Coauthor of the study Victoria Strait said “as we peer into the cosmos, we also look back in time so these extreme high-resolution observations allow us to understand the building blocks of some of the very first galaxies,”

    She further explained “When the light that we see from Earendel was emitted, the Universe was less than a billion years old; only 6 per cent of its current age. At that time it was 4 billion lightyears away from the proto-Milky Way, but during the almost 13 billion years it took the light to reach us, the Universe has expanded so that it is now a staggering 28 billion lightyears away.”
