Galaxies across space and time
In a journey across 9 billion years of cosmic history this IMAX short-film — awarded "Best Short Feature" in the Large Format Cinema Association’s 2004 Film Festival — features a fantastic computer-generated flight through a field of over 10 000 galaxies that takes audiences on a journey back through time to an era when galaxies were newly formed. Viewers will see the Universe as it appeared when it was young.
These galaxies were photographed by Hubble as part of the Great Observatory Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) project. The original source image contains over 600 million pixels. Hubble scientists and imaging specialists worked for months to extract individual galaxy images, placing them in a 3D model according to their approximate true distances as determined by ground-based data.

This film is available for showing at institutional IMAX theaters at no cost.
