Welcome to the Hubble Deep Field Academy

Walk in the footsteps of astronomers as you explore the farthest regions of the known universe. Using astronomers' methods, dive into the Hubble Space Telescope image of the Hubble Deep Field, containing some of the most distant objects in the cosmos. See if you can uncover some of the same findings that astronomers have. Compare your observations to those of the astronomers, all the way through the academy levels.
