Hubble: Galaxies Across Space & Time

It’s this kind of stuff that makes me love astronomy. 9 billion years of cosmic history that in 2 minutes 51 seconds.

These galaxies were photographed by Hubble as part of the Great Observatory Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) project. The original source image contains over 600 million pixels. Hubble scientists and imaging specialists worked for months to extract individual galaxy images, placing them in a 3D model according to their approximate true distances as determined by ground-based photometric redshift data.
