Every Point is a Galaxy, According to ESA

The Herschel Space Observatory, which is operated by the European Space Agency presented an astounding image.

The image captured appear as if it were just  a square filled with tiny grains of static. Then you realize that every point is a distant galaxy, millions of them.

According to the ESA, each of these minute marks represents the “heat” emanating from dust grains lying between the stars of each galaxy.

This radiation has taken many billions of years to reach us, and in most cases was emitted well before the solar system and the Earth had even formed.
