Using radio waves, a group of astronomers discovered two “invisible” galaxies hiding behind a curtain of dust near the dawn of the universe. 

This curtain of dust was hitherto obscuring the galaxies from their view. The galaxies have been named REBELS-12-2 and REBELS-29-2 and they are among the most distant known galaxies.  The galaxies are a staggering 29 billion light-years away.
