Hubble, lensing and Thursday morning

Most Amazing image.  14 hours exposure from the Hubble

It puts life on earth in perspective -- these are all galaxies about half way to the "end" of the universe.  Yeah since there's is no end... how can this be halfway there.  Still mightily impressive.  Apparently the galaxies that are hazy is due to lensing effect -- where the light is distorted (and creating a lens) allowing the Hubble to see further.  Creationists put that in your pipe and smoke it!
