I love anything from the Hubble Telescope, but this is pretty amazing: A new an hours-long infrared exposure at a section of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field image has shown us perhaps the most distant galaxies we’ve ever seen. One of the group of seven is 13.3 billion light years away–meaning that these galaxies were around before Earth even existed.
I mean….holy shit. Way to be mind-bogglingly vast and ancient, Universe. Way to be clever hairless ape and figure this out, humans.
