Pointing the Hubble at Nothing

Infinity is a hard concept to grasp. As long as I’ve been thinking about it, which is all my life, I haven’t ever really been able to accept that no matter how far you travel, you can always go another mile, and then a mile after that and a mile after that….forever.

In the following video, the immense size of the universe is better defined by views from the Hubble telescope. The Hubble telescope is so powerful that its field of view is sprinkled with planets and stars. But, some areas appear empty, so this video shows what happens when you point the Hubble telescope at “nothing,” or where there appears to be nothing….

Point the Hubble telescope at “nothing;” you still see something.
