One of the most distant galaxies ever observed has provided astronomers with the first detection of dust in such a remote star-forming system and tantalising evidence for the rapid evolution of galaxies after the Big Bang. The new observations have used ALMA to pick up the faint glow from cold dust in the galaxy A1689-zD1 and used ESO's Very Large Telescope to measure its distance. A team of astronomers, led by Darach Watson from the University of Copenhagen, used the Very Large Telescope's X...
