Pale Blue Dot, Voyager 1 image

This unique narrow-angle color image is of the Earth, dubbed Pale Blue Dot, is a part of the first ever portrait of the solar system taken by Voyager 1. The spacecraft acquired a total of 60 frames for a mosaic of the solar system from a distance of more than 4 billion miles from Earth and about 32 degrees above the ecliptic. From Voyager's great distance Earth is a mere point of light, less than the size of a picture element even in the narrow-angle camera. Earth was a crescent only 0.12 pixel in size. Coincidentally, Earth lies right in the center of one of the scattered light rays resulting from taking the image so close to the sun. This blown-up image of the Earth was taken through three color filters -- violet, blue and green -- and recombined to produce the color image. The background features in the image are artifacts resulting from the magnification

Hubble Ultra Deep Field galaxies Featured Space Exploration Print

Hubble Ultra Deep Field galaxies

Ultra Deep Field galaxies. Hubble Space Telescope Ultra Deep Field, the deepest view ever taken of the universe in 2004. Each dot of light is a separate galaxy. Some of these are amongst the most distant objects ever seen, over 13 billion light years away, and thus over 13 billion years old. To detect these extremely faint galaxies, the HST focused its ACS and NICMOS cameras on an apparently empty patch of sky for one million seconds. The infrared NICMOS data shows galaxies at a redshift of up to 12, which were among the first objects to form in the universe after its birth 13.7 billion years ago
