Cosmic Perspective - Our ancestors thought the sky was flat, but we now know it as a place of infinite depth. Only Hubble can make the jump across those huge distances with stunning clarity. This is an outward-bound journey from “here to   infinity” showing all the scales where Hubble operates, from the solars ystem to the most remote reaches of the cosmos.

Etched in Time – Hubble not only looks out into space, it looks back in time. The further light travels to reach the telescope the further back in time we see the object that emitted the light. Hubble can actually look to the time when the galaxies were still assembling. It’s a violent process that carries on today as massive galaxies collide.
