The most comprehensive view yet of the evolution of the Universe. Hubble Space Telescope observations in the ultraviolet have been added to the existing observations of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. So the youngest and hottest stars - absent from the original - are now included. (Image Credit: NASA, ESA, H. Teplitz and M. Rafelski (IPAC/Caltech), A. Koekemoer (STScI), R.

The first image of the Orion Nebula (also known as M42) was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope and is one of the most detailed images ever produced of this region. Hubble used all of its instruments over the course of 105 orbits to capture this stunning image. At full resolution, it contains nearly a billion pixels.
