What’s being called the deepest look yet into the universe is now available for your perusal, thanks to the folks running the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

The “eXtreme Deep Field,” or XDF image, was built using 10 years of Hubble observations taken on one patch of sky. The area under study was the Hubble Ultra Deep Field —  a part of the Fornax (or Furnace) constellation. The data dates from 2003 and 2004.  The image itself shows thousands of galaxies — some relatively close and some very distant to the earth.
