This spectacular image is the deepest view of the Universe ever captured
Astronomers working with the Hubble Space Telescope have just released the most detailed view of the early Universe ever captured. It’s called the eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF for short. The image combines over ten years’ worth of photographs by Hubble. It required 2-million seconds of exposure time to produce, and contains over 5,500 of the Universe’s most ancient galaxies.
