This image is the result of pointing the Hubble telescope at what looked like empty space. Instead of empty space, we found about galaxies. These are young galaxies, from about 400 to 800 million years after the big bang.
It& up there right now -- flying about 340 miles over the Earth and circling us every 97 minutes. It& a telescope -- in the sky.It& called the Hubble Space Telescope. The telescope itself is not really much to look.
This view of nearly 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.
