In December of 1996, scientists pointed the Hubble Telescope at, what was thought to be, the emptiest part of outer space, and opened the aperture for 10 consecutive days. Upon reviewing the photo, they discovered there to be some 3,000 galaxies. As the universe expands, the galaxies recede from earth, causing a phenomenon referred to as "red shift." By measuring the red shift, scientists determined that some of the galaxies were more than 12 billion light years away from Earth.
To think that the light we are seeing has traveled 12 billion years, across space and time, to be captured by the Hubble Telescope, and treasured by us all, really puts into perspective, the vast enormity of our universe, and what a small, and fragile part we play in the grand scheme of things.
When we stop and appreciate that we are such a tiny part of this unimaginably infinite universe, it becomes quite difficult to continue to imagine ourselves to be some all important center of it.
