That Sure Is A Lot Of Space
I think this is pretty amazing… that’s it.
NASA RELEASES PHOTO SHOWING VAST AREA OF SPACE: NASA released a photo yesterday (June 3rd) showing a vast area of space including some 10,000 galaxies and light that goes back 12 billion years, almost to the beginning of the universe. The image also for the first time stretches across the full spectrum of light, from infra-red to ultra-violet. The orbiting Hubble space telescope took nine years and 840 orbits to create the image, looking at the same area repeatedly until the ultraviolet galaxies started to show up in the picture.
