Hubble Deep Field: The Most Imp. Image Ever Taken

This is a very neat film I found on YouTube today. It's about the Hubble Deep Field from the Hubble Space Telescope. It's a Space Telescope that takes some very cool pictures. This is from the Wikipedia page:

"The Hubble Deep Field (HDF) is an image of a small region in the constellation Ursa Major, constructed from a series of observations by the Hubble Space Telescope. It covers an area 2.5 arcminutes across, two parts in a million of the whole sky, which is equivalent in angular size to a 65 mm tennis ball at a distance of 100 metres. The image was assembled from 342 separate exposures taken with the Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 over ten consecutive days between December 18 and December 28, 1995."

Very cool!
