Astronomers at the Space Telescope Science Institute today unveiled the deepest portrait of the visible universe ever achieved by humankind. Called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF), the million-second-long exposure reveals the first galaxies to emerge from the so-called "dark ages," the time shortly after the big bang when the first stars reheated the cold, dark universe. The new image should offer new insights into what types of objects reheated the universe long ago.

This historic new view is actually two separate images taken by Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) and the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-object Spectrometer (NICMOS). Both images reveal galaxies that are too faint to be seen by ground-based telescopes, or even in Hubble's previous faraway looks, called the Hubble Deep Fields (HDFs), taken in 1995 and 1998.

Pictures like this make me want to take the rest of the day off to contemplate my existence, drink and play Grand Turismo.

It's even more mind wobbling when you consider that every single one of those dots is a galaxy as big as, or bigger than our own.

The dirt is dry.
Yeah, and we shouldn't waste all that money on universities. Everyone should get a practical job at factories, or McDonalds. Why waste money on scientific research when we could be feeding the needy?

You think you love music, but not like me, i feel it deep inside my soul. I think of you thinking this and I think, what does he know, but I realize i'm talking to me, and I'm right, no one feels like I do.

Here's a close up view of a section of the image:



The largest galaxies are about a billion light years away - so the light coming from them is reaching us now, but was emitted about a billion years ago. In comparison, the small specks are galaxies about 15 billion light years away, and were formed when the universe was only about 400 to 800 million years old.
