This month, NASA launched the biggest picture ever taken of the Milky Method’s nearest neighbor—Andromeda Galaxy. The 4.3 GB picture, taken by the Hubble Telescope, is 1.5 billion pixels giant (69,536 x 22,230) and is made up of 411 separate photographs.
This video exhibits you the entire picture after which zooms in so you may get a really feel for the unthinkable variety of stars. It takes you thru 100 million stars (lower than 1/1,000th of all the celebrities in Andromeda) and travels over greater than 40,000 mild years.
By the way in which: right here’s how Andromeda would look in our evening sky, if it had been brighter.
