Researchers have captured a radio signal from the most distant galaxy to date

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, something emitted radio waves. Now the Giant Metrewave Telescope in India has captured that faint signal from 8.8 billion light years away. Researchers say receiving this signal is like reading a message from the past. It may help to explain distant galaxies. And I hope if you listen very closely to that radio signal, you might just hear a voice saying, it's MORNING EDITION.
