This video presents an overview of the Frontier Fields project. While Hubble has a celebrated history of deep field observations, astronomers can use massive galaxy clusters as gravitational lenses to see a little farther into space and a little further back in time. This ambitious, community-developed project is a collaboration among NASA's Great Observatories to probe the earliest stages of galaxy development. Initial data from this multiyear effort was presented at the American Astronomical Society Meeting in January 2014.
