We combine new high sensitivity ultraviolet (UV) imaging from the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) with existing deep HST/Advanced Camera for Surveys optical images from the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) program to identify UV-dropouts, which are Lyman break galaxy (LBG) candidates at z ≃ 1-3. These new HST/WFC3 observations were taken over 50 arcmin2 in the GOODS South field as a part of the Early Release Science program. The uniqueness of these...[Show more]
