The Milky Way galaxy is 105,700 light-years wide.

The Milky Way is about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 km (about 100,000 light years or about 30 kpc) across. The Sun does not lie near the center of our Galaxy. It lies about 8 kpc from the center on what is known as the Orion Arm of the Milky Way.

The Milky Way is still gulping small galaxies and their hydrogen gas. ... Sloane telescope can see distant galaxies but only as they were billions years ago. And scientists discovered that spiral galaxies similar to the Milky Way are also dying.

They deduced the target galaxy GN-z11 is not only the oldest galaxy but also the most distant. It's so distant it defines the very boundary of the observable universe itself.
