Science Geeks: Hubble’s Deep Field Image

I could watch this stuff all day.  The Discovery Channel, when they play these short documentaries on this subject,  you’ll find me front and center staring at, slack-jawed…eyes all bugged out…

This is the latest from the Hubble telescope and taking one of the most important images ever taken by the human race. This is known as a “Deep Field” image, and you’ll be looking at galaxies that are over 40-billion light years away from our own dinky-sized planet.

And, of course – a video short on how the Hubble managed to take that photo…

…And this one too:

h/t to Marshall Brian. Thank you!
