Ultra Hubble Deep Field in 3-D

In December of 1995, astronomers did a risky experiment with the Hubble Space Telescope. They pointed it to a region in space the size of a speck of dust that is seemingly empty and kept the telescope watching for 10 days.  Using redshift data, a 3-D animated view of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field was created.

It is humbling to think just how tiny humans are in the scheme of the universe.  [via here/here]
