new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

new hubble ultra deep field

hubble's deepest view of universe unveils never-before-seen galaxies:

'NASA's hubble space telescope has made the deepest image of the universe ever taken in near-infrared light. the faintest and reddest objects in the image are galaxies that formed 600 million years after the big bang. no galaxies have been seen before at such early times. the new deep view also provides insights into how galaxies grew in their formative years early in the universe's history.

the image was taken in the same region as the hubble ultra deep field (HUDF), which was taken in 2004 and is the deepest visible-light image of the universe. hubble's newly installed wide field camera 3 (WFC3) collects light from near-infrared wavelengths and therefore looks even deeper into the universe, because the light from very distant galaxies is stretched out of the ultraviolet and visible regions of the spectrum into near-infrared wavelengths by the expansion of the universe.'

  1. Watching so much science fiction makes me forget the real scope of existence. It's immensely spiritual.
