    "This work shows that, with new technology, it has finally become possible to make significant advances in the detection of yet more distant galaxies," Dominik Riechers, an astronomer who wrote a commentary about the new study, told Space.com via email.
    "However, the work also mentions that they expected to find six galaxies at similar distances, but just were able to confirm one," he added. "Thus, we know now that we will be able to push the frontiers in studies of the early universe further, but it may be even harder than anticipated."
    It's possible that scientists got these results from peering deeply into "the era when the universe made its transition from an opaque state, in which most of the hydrogen gas between galaxies is neutral, to a translucent state, in which most of the hydrogen is ionized," the University of Texas at Austin said in a statement.
