A typical view of our distant universe, looking down a long corridor of galaxies stretching billions of light-years in space. The large galaxies are relatively close. Smaller ones are further away, so distant that their light has taken billions of years to reach us. We are seeing these galaxies when they were much younger than the larger, nearby galaxies. The stars are foreground stars in our Milky Way Galaxy.
