Really cool video about what exists in the blackness of space, and just how many stars and galaxies there are... Really cool animations as well!

Thanks PugetSoundSoldier.

Very, very humbling... And, clear testimony to the majesty of the heavens.

Supposedly, the concentration of galaxies is such that a grain of sand held at arm’s length will block out a few thousand galaxies, a thumb 1 million.

At 2:25, they state the galaxies are traveling faster than light, ....hows dat? We don't know anything faster than light.

>>> they state the galaxies are traveling faster than light, ....hows dat? We don’t know anything faster than light.

Perhaps they mean if you assume a galaxy traveling to the “right” at 100,000 mps, and a galaxy traveling to the “left” also at 100,000 mps. The cumulative rate of separation between the two galaxies would exceed the speed of light though neither galaxy itself violates the speed limits. The light from neither galaxy could ever catch up to the other.

Thank you so much for the post...The Hubble is amazing in what we now know about the universe and see.

That was a fantastic video and It shows what well spent American Taxpayer dollars can do.

Unfortunately the Resident clown is killing the space shuttle program so there will be NO further maintainance or improvements done to the Hubble so there is No telling how long it will remain functional.

One good thing though is that these Astronomers will have plenty of data to go through for years to come pending the launch of the James Webb Space telescope.

That telescope should be really awesome once its eye is opened.

“traveling away from us” We are moving at a fast speed and so are they. Two cars pass on the freeway at 60 MPH they are moving away from each other at 120 MPH.

That new IMAX 3D Hubble movie is supposed to be spectacular.

and a galaxy traveling to the “left” also at 100,000 mps.
The cumulative rate of separation between the two galaxies
would exceed the speed of light
though neither galaxy itself violates the speed limits.
The light from neither galaxy could ever catch up to the other.

Hmmm...
Einstein would have something to say about this.
Ah yes, what happens is that
though the galaxies may be moving away from each other
at a speed greater than the speed of light
relative to a third observer,
the two galaxies would actually
see each other moving at a speed
less than the speed of light,
but the measure of distance itself would contract...
and the light each galaxy sent to the other
would be red shifted

Something like that

Lets hope the James Webb Space telescope’s unique heat sheild opens up properly.
The have had plenty of time to make sure it does though.
How long now has this thing been in the planning stages?
Seems forever.
