-- The Hubble Ultra Deep Field

In an inspired idea, astronomers decided to point Hubble at a blank patch of sky for several days to discover what extremely distant objects might be seen at the edge of the observable universe.

The Hubble Ultra Deep Field contains nearly 10,000 objects, the light from some of these galaxies has been traveling for over 13 billion years, since the universe was only about half a billion years old.
