Hubble Ultra Deep Field in 3DAugust 16, 2009
Over at Deep Astronomy, Tony Darnell makes a pretty good case that the Hubble Deep Field pictures are the most important images ever taken. To drive his point home, he put together a video about the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, how it was made, and what it means. At the tail end of the video the camera flies through the HUDF to show how the galaxies are distributed in three dimensions. The whole thing is only four minutes long, and I guarantee that it will be time well spent.
