The HDUV ultraviolet image of the Hubble Space Telescope covers 12,000 galaxies with the birth of stars in the constellation Pec. This field has been named GOODS-South. With the addition of ultraviolet light, scientists at the Hubble Space Telescope obtained the largest panoramic view of the birth of stars in a distant universe.
Hubble's UV vision opens up a new window into space, tracking the stellar birth over the past 11 billion light years, right up to the most intense star formation that occurred 3 billion years after the Big Bang. Until now, UV light has been the missing piece of the puzzle. Now the combination of data in the infrared and visible light of Hubble and other space and ground-based telescopes has made it possible to create the most complete portrait of the evolutionary history of the Universe. The photograph covers the gap between distant galaxies, observed only in IR light, and closer ones, which are fixed at different wavelengths. Light from distant regions of the birth of stars in distant galaxies began as ultraviolet. But the expansion of the universe has shifted it into infrared waves. By comparing images of star formation in the distant and nearby Universe, scientists will be able to better understand how neighboring galaxies have grown.
For observation, a wide-angle camera 3 of the Hubble telescope was used. The mosaic is 14 times the area of the famous image of the ultraviolet field, released in 2014.
