Cool Scale of the Universe (from 10^-35m to 10^27m)

Impressive. It's quite a mind-boggling representation. You'll feel like a titanic giant, or less than a spec of amoeba dandruff, depending on which end of the scale you're looking at.

How are they able to determine the how far away the light detected by the hubble is? For instance, when you completely zoom out, they state that it's 12.7 billion light-years away.

Yeah, how scientists figure this stuff out is baffling.
I wonder how much of it is just good guesstimations.

And yeah, this was posted several times in the past already.
Unless the guy updated it and put more info now.

None the less, very cool.

Wouldn't they essentially do this by using the speed of light with the estimated age of the universe and then basically saying "If the universe is 6 billion years old then we can see 6,000,000,000 light years in any direction meaning we can roughly see 12,000,000,000 light years out."?

Seems like the logical supposition.

If they can see this far out, they can probably see life on other planets but just hiding it from us.

they can't "see" the planets. They just see light and see how it shift's and stuff like that.

To see life on a planet is pretty difficult. Think about the atmosphere. You would have to penetrate that. And think of the resolution you need.

And the biggest reason why I think this isn't true is because there are so many astronomers. And they aren't government controlled. So to find such a discovery, the government could not contain it. It would be published or leaked rather easily

Reminds me of the Dr. Seuss movie Horton Hears a Who.. how our whole planet is nothing but a speck in the bigger perspective.

I was listening to 1130 today and they said the predecessor to Hubble, the James Webb Space Telescope, will be 100 times more powerful. The estimated build cost was 3 billion but was recently estimated to take 8 billion to complete.
