Hubble Goes Deep
Do not adjust your screen. Before you stands a portal connecting us to the universe as it was just a few hundred million years after The Big Bang.
NASA has released an updated version of the iconic Hubble Deep Field for 2014, adding in data from Hubble’s ultraviolet sensors to bring the total number of galaxies visible in the image to nearly 10,000. And all this in an area just one thirteen-millionth of the entire sky.
