It's full of stars!

I know I've mentioned this before, but this site released new and better pictures of the extreme deep field. My favourite new edition is this photo, that shows how much of space this shot fills (not much). What's very bizarre about the galaxies in the shot is that more than two thirds of what's in this picture is looking back in time more than 5 billion years.

Just look at all those galaxies folks. How in the world are we alone?
