The hubble hits just keep on coming!

Check out this latest image from Hubble: http://tinyurl.com/ykt547o  Just think, each little speck is a galaxy, with hundreds of billions of stars...mindblowing! You can actually see the oldest ones in the bigger picture. They're the red blobs, displaying that famous red-shifting, and - get this - we're seeing them as they were up to 13 billion years ago!  The image was created by combining several different images, taken in ultraviolet, visible light and near-infrared.

We are so small.......
