Hubble Deep Field
November 26, 2013
The first time I saw the Hubble Deep Field image, I thought it was nice enough. But, it was when I read the story about how it came to be, that it became my favorite image!
The very idea, "Well, let's point the Hubble at the blackest part of the sky, where there is absolutely nothing, as far as we know, and see what develops," was ridiculed by many, if not most of those in charge of allocating time on the Hubble.
No one thought it useless after it was developed! Over 1,500 galaxies popped into existence! Awesome!
