See 265,000 galaxies in the epic Hubble Legacy Field mosaic

Hubble creates stunning mosaic containing roughly 265,000 galaxies

You're looking at 265,000 individual galaxies that extend all the way back to just 500 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was still young and Earth wasn't even a planet. The faintest and farthest galaxies in the image are just one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can observe.

"Now that we have gone wider than in previous surveys, we are harvesting many more distant galaxies in the largest such dataset ever produced by Hubble", Garth Illingworth, leader of the team that assembled the image and a researcher at the University of California, Santa Cruz, said in the statement.

The HLF image contains 100 times as many galaxies as the previous deep field surveys partly because it covers a wider view from Earth that is nearly the width of the Earth's Moon.

Telescope "Hubble" was launched into orbit on 24 April 1990 by the crew of the ship of reusable use "Diskaveri" and since then transmitted to Earth millions of unique images, much wider representation of scientists about the structure and origin of the Universe. "Astronomers can select the data in the Legacy Field they want and work with it immediately, as opposed to having to perform a huge amount of data reduction before conducting scientific analysis".

The mosaic includes Hubble images that range from ultraviolet to near-infrared light, offering a detailed view of various features of galaxy assembly over time.

The new view of the universe is available through the online database Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes, which includes data from Hubble and other NASA missions.

NASA's Hubble Telescope has released an image that combined 7500 images from 16 years of surveys that reflects galaxies and stars billions of light years away. MAST is a project of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore. The image, a combination of almost 7,500 separate Hubble exposures, contains roughly 265,000 galaxies.

Like watching individual frames of a motion picture, the Hubble deep surveys reveal the emergence of structure in the infant Universe and the subsequent dynamic stages of galaxy evolution. The image revealed more than 5,000 galaxies in an area of the sky that was just a tenth of the width of the full moon.

Navy security and emergency response personnel also were on the scene, the Navy release said. All those taken to hospital were said to be in a good condition, with no critical injuries.


The vast number of galaxies in the Legacy Field image are also prime targets for future telescopes. The Hubble eXtreme Deep Field image contains several of the most distant objects ever identified.

The James Webb Space Telescope, which will give astronomers an even deeper look into the legacy field, is expected to launch in 2021. Hubble's surveys of disc galaxies aim to explore the relationship between these black holes and their local galaxies.

The spiral galaxy is the most iconic resident of the universe.
