‘Picture window’

looks back over 12 billion years

WASHINGTON, June 19 — A new wide-angle view of the universe looks back to a mere billion years after the Big Bang, revealing secrets about the lives of galaxies and the black holes at their hearts, scientists reported on Thursday.

THE NEW VIEW is contained in one extraordinary image, compiled by astronomers using a super-high-resolution camera aboard NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, along with a catalog of objects giving off strong X-rays from space, detected by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, another NASA-affiliated instrument.

Just think of the sort of pictures we'll be able to get over the next few years.

As telescopes become more and more powerful, it won't be long before we may be able to actually see the light from planets around distant stars, as well as other views of the universe that were never thought possible before.

SaRuMaN, it does seem that we are getting closer and closer to finding out more than we could've ever imagined. I think this is a very exciting time for Astronomy and Astrophysics right now. I could be wrong, but it seems like everyday there is something new and incredible that they've found.
