Leading astronomers working with the Hubble Space Telescope have captured what is said to be the most definitive image ever compiled of our complex and ever evolving universe.

The Ultraviolet Coverage of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (UVUDF) project has been said to have filled in some of the lack of data that previously existed concerning star formation in galaxies 5 – 10 billion light-years from our Solar System; this also corresponds to a galactic time period in which most of the stars in the Universe were being born.

Astounding doesn’t even begin to describe an image like this. For much more detailed and official information, view the original Hubble article at spacetelescope.org. FYI, if you magnify the image a few thousand times you actually can see the USS Enterprise.
