Thank you for that. Simply awe-inspiring.

When the light from that galaxy started towards us, the Cambrian Explosion had "just happened", presenting us with early Cambrian diversification and the bare beginnings of what we think of as animal life on Earth now. We weren't even an interesting idea at the time that light started towards us. Earth was still knocking out trilobite variants. We're not merely looking back in time, but so far back that it's almost abstract, at least in my mind.

I love the ethereal background music that's played in space. Those are some powerful microphones on that telescope.
