The photo was taken by the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope
NASA has released the 'deepest and sharpest' photo of distance space.
Taken by the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope, which has replaced Hubble, it captures a cluster of galaxies and stars.
NASA says the telescope is capturing light that is over 13 billion years old.
Part of the image shows the aftermath of the Big Bang.
The telescope could also detect extra-terrestrial life.
Seanie Morris from the Midlands Astronomy Club says the telescope will also be put to use closer to home:
