HLF GOODS South Filters

Hubble Legacy Fields v1.5 GOODS-South Data Release

The 1.5 version of the HLF dataset combines over 7200 ACS/WFC and WFC3/IR images covering a 25 x 25 arcminute area plus (smaller) cutouts of four deep areas in the GOODS-South field. The 1.5 version includes new data and improved processing.


Hubble Team Breaks Cosmic Distance Record

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is an amazing time machine; by looking back through space, astronomers actually look back through time. Now, by pushing Hubble to its limits, an international team of astronomers has shattered the cosmic distance record by viewing the farthest galaxy ever seen. Named GN-z11, this surprisingly bright, infant galaxy is seen as it was 13.4 billion years in the past.

The Reionization Epoch: New Insights and Future Prospects Conference

The past few years have seen enormous progress in our ability to observe and characterize the very early universe before the end of cosmic reionization after only one billion years. In particular, the installation of the WFC3/IR camera onboard the Hubble Space Telescope completely revolutionized the search for galaxies at redshifts z>6 leading to first galaxy candidates out to z~10-12, less than 500 Myr from the big bang.
