THE HUBBLE ULTRA DEEP FIELD

Chosen by: David Leckrone, former Hubble project scientist, Goddard Space Flight Center
“This image is of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, updated in 2014 to encompass the full range of wavelengths that Hubble’s cameras can image, from the ultraviolet to the infrared. A few of the objects here, the ones with diffraction spikes, are foreground stars. Every other object is a galaxy. Some of these emitted the light we now see when the Universe was 400 million to 600 million years old, about 3-4% of its present age.”
