Caption: Big Bang and early galaxies. Galaxies forming in the early universe following the Big Bang, the initial expansion of all the matter in the universe from an infinitely compact state some 13.7 billion years ago. The galaxies formed some 500 million years after the Big Bang, and are still receding from each other today. This recession of the galaxies is a key piece of evidence for the Big Bang theory.
