It is named Earendel.
The star is about 13 million light-years from Earth. The leaders of the mission to find it is sure that during the time that the light from the star travelled through the universe. However, the universe expanded during that time, and the number of light-years increased to 28 million. Therefore, it can be called a real old-timer: only 7% of objects of such an "elderly" age remain in the universe. Previously, scientists found only small constellations of this age. It was initially believed that Icarus was the "oldest" star and that it was located 14 million light-years from Earth.
Earendel weighs at least 50 of our suns and shines millions of times brighter. If our planet were the same distance from it as the Sun, it would collapse in a fraction of a second.
