This Hubble Space Telescope view reveals thousands of galaxies stretching back into time across billions of light-years of space. The image covers a portion of a large galaxy census called the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS). Besides the myriad of galaxies visible in this image, only 10 percent of the total number of galaxies in the universe are observable for the current generation of telescopes, according to a new analysis of the GOODS and other Hubble deep-field surveys. The study's researchers concluded that at least 10 times more galaxies exist in the observable universe than previously thought. The analysis places the universe's estimated population at, minimally, 2 trillion galaxies. According to the research, about 90 percent of galaxies in the observable universe are too faint and too far away to be seen with present-day telescopes.

So, with that being said, there has to be a planet out there with life on it. And I mean evolved life like us.

We are just too far away to find out....

God was smart when he did that..

Thankfully us humans keep planning to build bigger and better telescopes, here on earth and beyond our atmosphere. I see God's wondrous creation in the night sky.

Perspective, SNIPER...perspective.

Not sure you would know anything about that, though.

Maybe it was to demonstrate the extent of his omnipotence and provide us with a grand material image of the infinite, in which God himself exceeds.

After all, when one is omnipotent, the idea of wastefulness is meaningless.
