Anorak | The biggest photograph of the universe ever taken

The biggest photograph of the universe ever taken

by | 26th, September 2012

THE Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has produced this photo of the universe. It took 500 hours to build. The eXtreme Deep Field, the picture is made up of 2,000 separate exposures over 10 years. “The faintest galaxies are one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can see.”

The problem is not seeing, it getting your head around what you can see.

And in other news: we’re leaving the solar system.
