Photo: Hubble captures 'most colorful' view of the universe

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have assembled a comprehensive picture of the evolving universe -- among the most colorful deep space images ever captured by the 24-year-old telescope,
 NASA said Tuesday.

This handout composite image provided by NASA shows the visible and near infrared light spectrum collected from Hubble over a nine-year period. A new panorama looking deep and far into the universe for the first time includes ultraviolet light, which is normally not visible to the human eye. It shows up in the photo as bright baby blue with spinning galaxies, which are about 5 to 10 billion years old, not too old or young in cosmic terms. The photo was taken over 841 orbits of the telescope and shows about 10,000 multi-colored galaxies.
