Above image: HST ~ Ultra Deep Field

  • Those are all galaxies you're looking at, not stars!
Look up at the sky on a clear night and find any three stars that form a tight triangle, with no stars in between. Now, aim your telescope between those stars and zoom into the darkness... closer... What do you see? Tiny dots of light begin to appear.

More stars? Well, the dots of light you see may look like stars, but, as you zoom in even closer, you will find that each point of light, even the smallest that you can see, are actually entire galaxies beyond our galaxy with hundreds of billions of stars in each one.

You are looking into deep space, or Ultra Deep Field.
The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has captured this image from the area between three stars of the Milky Way galaxy, near Orion where it appears to be black and void of any celestial bodies.

By opening the telescopic lens for a long period of time, in fact more than 10 days, the light from distant galaxies is captured and you can see that there are an infinite number of galaxies in deep space, each with hundreds of billions of stars and potentially an infinite numbers of planets.

Really makes you think, huh? :xeye:

  • From Carl Sagan's novel, CONTACT
    • Young Ellie: "Dad, do you think there're people on other planets?"
    • Ted Arroway: "I don't know, Sparks, but I guess I'd say if it's just us... seems like an awful waste of space."
