Hubba-Hubble! Images from ACS surpass
Elated astronomers from Johns Hopkins, the Space Telescope
Science Institute and NASA recently unveiled the first
images taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys, a new
instrument installed in the orbiting Hubble Space
Telescope in March.
The new pictures contain beautiful vistas
that include nebulas awash in glowing gas and dust, and
galaxies colliding or merging on panoramic backdrops of more
distant galaxies and proto-galaxies.
"These are among the best images of
the distant universe that humans have ever seen," said
Holland Ford, astronomy professor in the Krieger
School of Arts and Sciences and leader of the team
that built the new camera.
