Zoom Into A Distant Galaxy Core In The Hubble GOODS North Field
This zoom begins with an expansive view of the deep sky Hubble Space Telescope survey called GOODS North (Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey).
Zooming into this field reveals a compact galactic core dubbed GOODS-N-774, the first galaxy spotted in this stage of formation — a very early stage where the dense galactic core is still furiously churning out newborn stars.
