In 1996 the Hubble Telescope pointed at a part of the sky that was seemingly dead and made one of the biggest finds of all time.

Here’s a cool video that leads you through a quick history of deep field images and an interesting fly through of the Ultra Deep Field.

Every galaxy in the image is in its correct distance as viewed from the telescope line of sight.

It’s always incredible to see the advancements of science, and the Hubble telescope is no exception.

Even more mind blowing, is that the scientists who use it don’t always think they’re going to find anything.

But they were shocked at their discoveries from a patch of seemingly nothingness in space that was revealed with the telescope.

It’s truly amazing! Give it a minute to load, it’s worth it.
