Introduction to Astronomy

Here is an example of a cool image from this course. This picture, called the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF), is the deepest visible-light image ever made of the Universe. It consists of a one million-second exposure taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2004. It reveal the very first galaxies forming in the Universe and engaging in violent interactions more than 13 billion years ago, shortly after the Big Bang.
