This Is the Most Detailed Image of the Universe Ever Captured
NASA has just published the most detailed view of the Universe ever taken. It’s called the Extreme Deep Field—or XDF for short. It took ten years of Hubble Space Telescope photographs to make it and it shows some the oldest galaxies ever observed by humans, going 13.2 billion years back in time.
It’s a mindblowing, extremely humbling view. Not only for what it shows, but for what it doesn’t show. While this image contains about 5,500 galaxies, it only displays a tiny part of the sky, a ridiculously small slice of the Universe.
is this not fucking terrifying or
i love science
I don’t want to be here anymore…
i wonder what it’s like to like date someone and know their family and go over their house whenever you want and sleep over whenever you want and what it’s like to have their family absolutely love you as if you were their own and just yeah what’s that like.
i hope i start my hot person phase soon
