This is the most detailed, deepest view of our universe ever captured, according to NASA.  

Also astounding is that the image was 10 years in the making.  

NASA used photos from the Hubble Space Telescope to assemble this view of the Extreme Deep Field. NASA said the process would be similar to a photographer creating a portfolio of best shots.

The image contains about 5,500 galaxies. 

Hubble does not travel to stars, planets, and galaxies. It takes pictures of them as it whirls around Earth at 17,500 miles an hour.
