Hubble Telescope Pointing At Nothing

In 1996  astronomers pointed the Hubble Space Telescope at what appeared to be absolutely nothing and left it there for 10 days, and then in  2004, they did it again for 11 days.  This  time they pointed the Hubble toward another seemingly black, empty  “nothing” area.  A narrator describes what Hubble revealed in those areas of nothingness.  They made the images Hubble recorded into a 3-D presentation.  Remember, the speed of light is 186,000 miles a second.  When light travels at that speed for an entire year, that is equal to one light year. The meaning of what Hubble found is beyond comprehension. Turn your sound on and go to this link:
