First of its kind. What is this? Who took this image?

Hint: This thing takes 63 Years to reach when you travel at the speed of light.

Answer:
“The image was taken by the Gemini Planet Imager, an incredibly powerful instrument that sits right here on Earth — in Chile to be exact. Using the magic of Adaptive Optics, they were able to capture this groundbreaking image of the 10-million-year-old planet Beta Pictoris b orbiting the massive star Beta Pictoris.” — Quoting Peta Pixel

    Some blue planet that looks like Earth. I am guessing Hubble telescope took the picture.
