Don't tell me "Nobody expected them"! Not only did I expect them, I predicted them again and again right here on Space.com forums as well as other places before. I've been proved . . . my prediction of that region has been proved and just as I predicted. If we ever get something more capable than the James Webb, there will be even more to come behind those so distant in light-time histories' "mature galaxies" in a "many worlds" (many universes), [multi-level multiplex] Multiverse-Universe. We are seeing two levels of a multi-dimensional Horizon. We are seeing -- well almost -- the purpose predicted [Big Bang / Planck / Infinite] Horizon (H) of Universe (U) (I claim always current and concurrent Horizon (H)), and we are seeing beyond it into the 'horizon' (h) of more universe (u) (to infinitely more universes (u)). The [point-portal-gateway-dual minimum] of at least two levels of that "Horizon" (H) / "horizon" (h). Both will remain as and what they are (the one maintaining its collapsed Big Bang / Planck / Infinity 'Horizon' distance always) no matter what more we observe farther and farther out, and farther and farther back, of Hawking's "life zone" (h)!
They will seemingly contradict each other, but actually they don't.
