Infrared Images from the Herschel Deep-space Telescope: Peering Into the Past Beyond the Cosmic Dust
In this colour-coded Spitzer image of the DR 21 star-forming region, the green reveals the emission from large molecules set aglow by the newly formed stars. The blue and red boxes show the area that HIFI has already surveyed for ionized carbon, a key ingredient of the molecular cloud material.

The image shows a rich tapestry of 7,500 galaxies stretching back through most of the universe’s history. The closest galaxies seen in the foreground emitted their observed light about a billion years ago. The farthest galaxies, a few of the very faint red specks, are seen as they appeared more than 13 billion years ago, or roughly 650 million years after the Big Bang. This mosaic spans a slice of space that is equal to about a third of the diameter of the full Moon (10 arc minutes).Now multipy that number by the number of fields left still to photograph……Magic Carpet Ride Stuff….
