Have you seen the Hubble Ultra Deep Field in 3D?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (30619points) September 23rd, 2010

In 1996, astronomers pointed the Hubble Space Telescope at a tiny patch of totally blank sky the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length. What they found was amazing.

Later, they were able to change the 2D image into a 3D video. Have you seen it? What other amazing astronomical images from the Hubble are you aware of and can share with us?

EDIT: Here’s a new video of a nebula.

You’re just quoting this video, right?

Yes, if you click on my link (amazing), that’s the video that comes up. What do you think of the pictures and the video?

I think we need more crazy gambles like that. I think we’re doing it with things like the LHC. It’s a fucking great time to be alive.

I’ve already seen it, but everytime I do see it, it makes it that much harder to fathom why we have humans in political power that want to prevent something so important like evolution in school and giving gay people equal rights. I just can’t believe people like us are a minority…...

I hadn’t seen the 3-D version of the image, but it’s awesome of course. Thanks for sharing.
