“Hubble captures extraordinary view of Universe”

| 0 comments

Hubble captures extraordinary view of Universe is an article from the BBC. Here’s an excerpt, and a video:

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has produced one of its most extraordinary views of the Universe to date.

Called the eXtreme Deep Field, the picture captures a mass of galaxies stretching back almost to the time when the first stars began to shine.

But this was no simple point and snap – some of the objects in this image are too distant and too faint for that.

Rather, this view required Hubble to stare at a tiny patch of sky for more than 500 hours to detect all the light.

“It’s a really spectacular image,” said Dr Michele Trenti, a science team member from the University of Cambridge, UK.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About The Hubble Telescope.
