My God, it’s full of.. nothing

Ultra Deep Field observation (partial)It took the Hubble space telescope 400 orbits and 800 exposures (the equivalent of staring into the same point in sky for 11.3 days) to build the Ultra Deep Field observation, an image that looks 7 billion years into the universe’s past to gather 10,000 galaxies into a single picture. But there’s a small problem; there aren’t enough stars.
Scientists are a little baffled by the results of the image. They expected to see a lot more big stars back there, the ones that supposedly “fried” the gas in the universe to create the intergalactic plasma that’s everywhere today. Only they don’t seem to be there, and no one knows why.
