The reach of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is astounding, and its ability to see back to nearer to the Big Bang than ever before is bound to reveal new secrets about the universe.

One of these secrets has left the astronomical community amazed and perplexed. The JWST has discovered relatively mature galaxies that shouldn’t have existed so soon after the Big Bang. More data will need to be collected, and the ages of these extremely distant galaxies will have to be scrutinized. But if the data proves to be correct, cosmologists will have to virtually remake the Big Bang model to account for these galaxies forming so quickly and being so massive and bright.
