A zoom into Abell 1689 and a very remote dusty galaxy

A zoom into the galaxy cluster Abell 1689. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, with a boost from the natural gravitational lensing of this cluster, can faintly detect the remote galaxy A1689-zD1 seen just 700 million years after the beginning of our Universe. This object has been detected by ALMA and had its distance measured using ESO's Very Large Telescope.
