That Hubble ultra deep field photo is one of my favourites.  Really puts perspective on how insignificant we are in the universe.

Thanks for the astounding Hubble Ultra Deep Field image Joan.

It's hard to comprehend what that image shows:  There are 10,000 lights in that image, most of which are galaxies.  Light from some of them has been traveling about 13 billion years.  Thats how they looked just about one-half of a billion years after the Big Bang.  

That image was the result of 260 hours of exposure.  The dark spot that Hubble looked at to get that image is so small, that it would take a million years to image the entire sky at that resolution.

The universe is an amazing place, and scientists are discovering amazing things, despite all that religion can do to put the brakes on those discoveries.

Lillie Fluer.....What Little research I have read is that the Round Stone Mayan Calendar does end. They used a base 13 for counting. The calendar ends because they ran out of numbers and would have had to start all over again. That is if they had survived that long. See

But I could be wrong.......duhno
