This tiny little red splotch in an image from the Hubble Space Telescope is one of the most distant objects in the Universe. It's 30 billion miles away, which is rather impressive considering that light has taken just 13 billion years to get there from here. This paradox is handily resolved by the fact that the entire Universe has been expanding the whole time, which is a pretty cool thing to think about, if you ask us.
