Zooming in on the young dusty galaxy A2744_YD4

This zoom video sequence starts with a flight through the faint constellation of Sculptor (The Sculptor). We soon see a rich group of distant galaxies, the cluster Abell 2744, known as Pandora’s Cluster. But continuing even further back into the early Universe we finish the trip looking at the dusty galaxy A2744_YD4, the most distant galaxy ever seen with ALMA.
