Subaru Deep Field
For thirty nights over a two year period, teams of researchers contributed exposures of an apparently vacant portion of the northern sky to create an image that provides a unique peek at the Universe when it was very young.

Technology is rad
Happy Intergalactic Coffee Day! Did you know that the official name for the Universe’s average color (light beige) is “Cosmic latte”? As if sleep-deprived stargazers needed another reason to love the beverage…
Dive into the Cosmos — A combination of infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope (red) and visible-light data (blue and green) from the Subaru telescope on Mauna Kea in Hawaii: “Millions of galaxies populate the patch of sky known as the COSMOS field, short for Cosmic Evolution Survey, a portion of which is shown here. Even the smallest dots in this image are galaxies, some up to 12 billion light-years away. The square region in the center of bright objects is where the telescope was blinded by bright light. However, even these brightest objects in the field are more than ten thousand times fainter than what you can see with the naked eye.” (NASA)/Jet Propulsion Laboratory)
That’s not LOGIC, that’s a failure to understand basic high school science.
I’m actually suffering from second hand embarrassment at the thought of someone being so scientifically illiterate as to say something like that.
