This is a Hubble Space Telescope image of a variety of galaxies with irregular and peculiar shapes. These galaxies are so far away that they are seen when the universe was a fraction of its current age.

The bright blue regions indicate a rapid episode of star formation. Hubble reveals that these objects once far outnumbered large galaxies like our Milky Way, but have faded or self-destructed by today.
