Since April 24th, 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has been changing our view of the universe. NASA has been able to discover new parts of space and or galaxies that no one has ever seen before.

On January 17th, the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias in Spain released a new image that the Hubble Space Telescope collected. This image is now called the deepest view of space that we have ever been able to see.

This is so big for the world of astronomy and science because it brings astronomers so much closer to understanding the toughest and most perplexing parts of our universe. We are that much closer to understanding how our universe works and how it came to be.

The new Hubble image is described as”a ‘deep’ core sample of the universe, cutting across billions of light-years.” This is since an improved image from one taken by the Hubble in 2012. The Hubble team was able to take original images and combine them together to gather light from distant galaxies and stars that they weren’t able to see before.

Hopefully, the Hubble continues to make discoveries as important as this one and narrate the story of our universe.
