    Some of you may have heard that Hubble has returned a new Extreme Deep Field image of a portion of our sky. I have posted the image below and it's cool, but I've found that most people do not quite understand what they are seeing. I've included a video where a women explains what we are seeing in the image.

    (click the image to see a larger version of it, though once it pops out. You may need to click it again to see it at full size)

    It's unreal how much stuff is in that image and that is such an extremely small portion of our sky.

    I love space studies as well and I am still mind-blown by what all is out there and the size of it all. The photo above contains all kinds of awesome. Thanks!

    ..it captured such a tiny portion you could look in any direction and it'd be about the size of a grain of sand at your arm's length if we were to give it an approximation.
