Galaxies like these weren't visible 700 million years after the Big Bang, so smaller galaxies must have merged together quite rapidly for them to get large and bright. The discoveries were made in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field and the Great Observatory Origins Deep Survey Fields.

    It will be a great shame if this instrument is not allowed to exist for as long as possible .
