thejazz97 Posted May 21, 2015 Share Posted May 21, 2015 On January 5th, 2015, NASA released an image taken of one of our closest galactic neighbors, the Andromeda Galaxy. It was captured using the Hubble Telescope, but this really is a whole new level even for Hubble. They shot 411 images and stuck them together to create this whopping 1.5 billion pixel image. It requires 4.3 GB of disk space to contain all of it! What we see are 100 million stars over 40,000 light years. You might find yourself feeling very very small, but that’s okay, because so are the rest of us. http://higherperspectives.com/largest-image-of-space/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udAL48P5NJU The full image is at the very end, but still very freakishly cool if you watch the whole thing.
