NASA (The smart guys who are humanity’s last hope if there’s an asteroid coming) has released the most colorful and detailed view of the universe so far, and it’s magnificent. The photo was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. This is part of a study being conducted called the Ultraviolet Coverage of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, and it’s described as “a composite of separate exposures taken in 2003 to 2012 with Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys and Wide Field Camera 3.”

Here are some more details on the photo which was taken:

The resulting image — made from 841 orbits of telescope viewing time — contains approximately 10,000 galaxies, extending back in time to within a few hundred million years of the big bang.


It’s quite a sight to behold, and reminds us a bit of our space curtains we all had in our rooms when we were younger…
