rusty red tones. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Some galaxies <Speech_Music_Female> are so deep in <Speech_Female> the background <Speech_Female> that astronomers <Speech_Female> say the image captures <Speech_Music_Female> how they look perhaps <Speech_Female> 13.1 billion <Silence> years <Speech_Male> ago. <Speech_Female> The first <Speech_Female> images from the James <Speech_Female>
