Caption: Distant galaxies. Hubble Space Telescope (HST) deep-view image of several thousand never before seen extremely distant galaxies. This is the deepest view yet into the universe. The most distant of these galaxies are around 12 billion light years away, meaning their light has travelled across about three-quarters of the known universe to reach Earth. These galaxies lie in the southern constellation Tucana. This image, the Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-S), was produced by the Hubble Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) after a ten-day exposure in October 1998.
