HubbleSite NewsCenter 1996-01: Hubble's Deepest View of the Universe Unveils Bewildering Galaxies across Billions of Years

The Hubble Telescope's "deepest-ever view of the universe" is available for viewing. "Several hundred never before seen galaxies are visible in this 'deepest-ever' view of the universe, called the Hubble Deep Field (HDF), made with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Besides the classical spiral and elliptical shaped galaxies, there is a bewildering variety of other galaxy shapes and colors that are important clues to understanding the evolution of the universe. Some of the galaxies may have formed less that one billion years after the Big Bang." Photos are available in low and high resolution, black & white and color, and are accompanied with a detailed explanatory caption, press release, and background information.
