Hubble Telescope shows deepest view into the universe

Posted: Updated:

Astronomers have pieced together ten years' worth of images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

The images provide the deepest view yet of a small sliver of the night sky.

They reveal galaxies and other celestial objects.

The Hubble Extreme Deep Field, or XDF, captured images of another fifty-five-hundred galaxies in the farthest reaches of the universe.

Astronomers say the most distant objects found so far date back to about five-hundred-million years after the universe was formed almost fourteen billion years ago.
