The first Hubble Space Telescope’s observations in the new BUFFALO project have been published. Its goal is to shed light on the evolution of the first galaxies of the universe, also to establish the most interesting observation targets for the James Webb space telescope. The Abell 370 galaxy cluster is the first to be studied for this new survey together with a series of galaxies seen through gravitational lenses.
