Hubble Pointing at Nothing.
This is fascinating. I challenge you to wrap your mind around this. Apparently our planet, even our galaxy, is like a tiny speck of sand in an immense ocean.
In 1996 astronomers pointed the Hubble Space Telescope at what appeared to be absolutely nothing and left it there for 10 days, and then in 2004, they did it again for 11 days. This time they pointed the Hubble toward another seemingly black, empty "nothing" area. A narrator describes what Hubble revealed in those areas of nothingness. They made the images Hubble recorded into a 3-D presentation. Remember, the speed of light is 186,000 miles a second. When light travels at that speed for an entire year, that is equal to one light year.
