The Hubble Telescope has captured a new vision of the universe, the deepest vision yet, called the eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF. This image reveals thousands of galaxies, 5,500 to be exact. It is actually a tiny fraction of the constellation Fornax, capturing light over many hours of observation.
The faintest galaxies seen are one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can see.
It’s hard to believe that random mess of light is a speck of dust in the mansion of light and darkness that is our home!
