This jaw-dropping photo was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and is a composite of multiple exposures taken from 2003 to 2012.  According to NASA, this jaw-dropping image was created from 841 orbits of telescope viewing time and contains approximately 10,000 galaxies extending back in time to within a few hundred million years of the Big Bang.  

Stare deep into the kaleidoscopic past and see if you can count them all!
