Hubble Captures Deepest Ever Picture Of The Universe And It'S Changing What We Know About Galaxies

A group of astronomers and scientists has spent the last three years working on an image of the deepest region in space ever pictured to draw out unseen galaxies, and the result is an incredible mosaic unlike anything else.

The fascinating image is a combination of hundreds of pictures taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope (HST) during 230 hours of observation in 2012. It shows a tiny region in the Fornax constellation dating back 13 billion years to just a few hundred years after the Bing Bang.

Called the Hubble Ultra Deep field (HUDF), the image is a spectacular display of about 10,000 galaxies that have now been shown in all their glory thanks to a team of scientists at the Institute of Astrophysics (IAC) in the Canary Islands. Their study has been published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.
