Birth of "this" universe

On ground Hubble Jr. was able to capture early clusters of exploding unstable stars, normally called red giants. Hubble was able to zoom to a young universe at just 4.5 million years old, when cosmic wind forces from the initial big bang created instability among emerging star formations. What we see are the remnants, the shattered dreams of potential shining stars, which still showed us the stuff they are made of. Yet despite their brevity, they left an impression from just an instance of life, that rekindles an appreciation for the value of short lives, to contribute to life's dreams, potential, beauty of life and nature.

Who knows what we have yet to discover about the universe and ourselves - the sky's the limit.
