NASA Hubble's largest-ever   billion years

infrared image peers back 10

The largest near-infrared

 of galaxies ever taken by the Hubble Space Telescope has provided a playground for astronomers 

The image is the 

result of a project called 3D-DASH and was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3

 It spans 1.35 square

 degrees of the sky, equivalent to about six full moons, and contains thousands of galaxies. 

The aim is to identify

 the galaxies worthy of further study by the James Webb Space Telescope and other telescopes in the future.

Rather than taking

 one image every time it orbits Earth, Hubble could take eight images using the technique called DASH.

With a total of 1,256

 individual WFC3 shots, it took just 250 hours of observing time to complete the entire mosaic.
