Looking 11 billion years back in time to when the universe was very young,
astronomers have found that the anatomy of distant galaxies is not that different
from galaxies seen in the nearby universe today. The results come from the
Hubble Space Telescope Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic
Legacy Survey (CANDELS). The largest project in the history of Hubble, it aims
to explore galactic evolution in the early universe, and the very first seeds of
cosmic structure at less than 1 billion years after the Big Bang.
