Quote:could some one check my math. (peer review): posted this on another forum:FYI some quick math:area of the night sky sphere = 41,253 square degreestimes (60 arc minutes per degree) squared = 41253 x3600=148,510,800 square arc minutes in entire sky.divided by 4.6 arc minutes area of Hubble XDF Image x approximately 5,500 galaxies in this picture=177,567,260,750 Galaxies potentially resolvable by HST in the visible universe!!
