Hubble Deep Field South--Multiple Windows on the Universe

Peering at a small patch of sky near the south celestial pole, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope used its full array of instruments to look nearly all the way across the universe. Called the Hubble Deep Field South (HDF-S), this new far-look complements the original Hubble 'deep field' taken in late 1995, when Hubble was aimed at a small patch of space in the opposite direction on the sky, near the north celestial pole.
