Zoom on the COSMOS field

Loading player...

This video offers a zoom on the largest sky survey ever carried out by Hubble: COSMOS. The COSMOS survey is a detailed map of a patch of sky roughly 10 times the size of the area covered by the full moon, which has been studied by Hubble and other telescopes at different wavelengths.

Data from the COSMOS survey has been used for much important research, including creating a 3-dimensional map of the Universe’s dark matter distribution, and a study into the relationship between major mergers of galaxies and active galactic nuclei.
