Hubble, the wonderful

There is a phenomenal picture taken by the Hubble Space  Telescope of deep space at   http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hubble/science/xdf.html

It’s a 10-year compilation of Hubble images taken  of one patch of the heavens in the constellation Formax. Called the Extreme Deep Field, or XDF, it is the deepest look astronomers have ever had into the Universe, revealing the most distant galaxies ever seen.

It is, as NASA said, a history of galaxies.  And  like all Hubble images, it is very beautiful.   We are very lucky to have lived in the age of  miracles and wonders that Hubble has given us. Long may it sail around above us, watching the heavens.
