Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have assembled a comprehensive picture of the evolving universe ... among the most colorful deep space images ever captured by the telescope.

The image, from a new study called the Ultraviolet Coverage of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, provides the missing link in star formation. The Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2014 image is a composite of exposures taken in 2002 to 2012.

Astronomers previously studied the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF) in visible and near-infrared light. Now, using ultraviolet light, astronomers have combined the full range of colors available to Hubble, stretching all the way from ultraviolet to near-infrared light. The resulting image contains approximately 10,000 galaxies, extending back in time to within a few hundred million years of the big bang.
