Astronomers have detected traces of water in one of the oldest known galaxies, proving for the first time that the life-giving substance played a role in the formation of the earliest stars.

The galaxy, called SPT0311-58, is located some 12.88 billion light-years from Earth, which means that telescopes see it as it looked like only 1 billion years after the Big Bang.

Astronomers estimate that the galaxy is only 780 million years old, an age at which stars formed at a much higher rate than they do in more mature galaxies.

Traces of water (in blue) seen in one of the most distant galaxies prove that the life-giving liquid existed already in the earliest stages of the evolution of the universe.
