UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Astronomers have managed to create a spatial panorama composed of about 265,000 galaxies using data collected for 16 years by the Hubble telescope.
Astronomers have combined approximately 7,500 individual images taken by the Hubble telescope to create the panoramic image of 265,000 galaxies.
Some of these galaxies are so far away that their light has taken more than 13 billion years to reach Earth.
“No image can surpass it, at least before the James Webb telescope is commissioned,” said Garth Illingworth, head of the Panoramic Image team at the University of California at Santa Cruz, cited by Science. Daily.
As the light of these galaxies takes a considerable amount of time to reach Earth, this photo can also be used to look back. We can observe our universe as it was about 500 million years after the Big Bang and follow its evolution.
