Oh my God, it’s full of stars!

One of the lines from 2001 that sticks in my head is when Dave gasps “Oh my God, it’s full of stars!”

That’s my reaction to the new Hubble photos. One of the images shows 6,000 galaxies in the background, and if I recall correctly, the field of view in that image is equivalent to that of a dime viewed at 70 feet.
