Galaxies like colorful pieces of candy fill the
Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2014.
The dimmest galaxies are more than 10 billion times fainter than
stars visible to the unaided eye and represent the
the extreme past, a few 100 million years after the
The image itself
was made with the significant addition
of ultraviolet data to the Hubble Ultra Deep Field,
an update of Hubble's
most distant gaze toward the southern constellation of Fornax.
It now covers the entire range of wavelengths available to
Hubble's cameras, from ultraviolet through visible to near-infrared.
Ultraviolet data adds the crucial capability of studying
star formation in the
Deep Field galaxies between 5 and 10 billion light-years distant.

Learning to code is a perfect way to grow your technical sophistication, and open up a host of new career options. But since most “learn to code” initiatives focus heavily on web development, it can be tough to find good resources for general-purpose computer science outside of a 4-year degree program. To get a broad […]
While many newer smartphones boast decent water resistance, most of us are still stuck with the kind of handsets that need to spend the night in a bowl of rice when they get wet. If you want to enjoy your favorite podcasts in the shower but are holding out for your next phone upgrade, this […]
