The Hubble Space Telescope has obtained the deepest view ever of the cosmos, detecting the youngest and most distant galaxies ever seen by astronomers. The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is the result of a prolonged look over four months at just one small patch of sky. This historic image takes astronomers close to the Big Bang itself, unveiling the first galaxies that emerged from the end of the so-called "dark ages." The image is expected to be unsurpassed until a new telescope is put in orbit.

I'd love to have my own space ship, float around in space and go where no one has gone before... okay, feet on the ground, Marcus! ;)

They mentioned this on the news here though, very fascinating. I can't wait to hear what they make out of this image http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
