Hubble's Deepest View Ever of the Universe Unveils Earliest Galaxies
ABOUT THIS MOST FAMOUS HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE IMAGE:
Galaxies, galaxies everywhere - as far as NASA's Hubble Space Telescope can see.
This view of nearly 10,000 galaxies is the deepest visible-light image of the cosmos.
Called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, this galaxy-studded view represents a "deep" core
sample of the universe, cutting across billions of light-years.
The snapshot, taken March 9, 2004, includes galaxies of various ages, sizes, shapes, and colors.
The smallest, reddest galaxies, about 100, may be among the most distant known,
existing when the universe was just 800 million years old.
The nearest galaxies - the larger, brighter, well-defined spirals and ellipticals - thrived about 1 billion years ago, when the cosmos was 13 billion years old....
MOST AMAZING SPACE IMAGE OF ALL TIME
This awesome image of deep space has to be the
world's most amazing picture of outer space ever
taken — it is an image our ancestors could hardly
have imagined in their wildest dreams.
