A Higher Perspective : Gigapixels of Andromeda

NASA’s newly released image of the Andromeda galaxy (aka M31) is comprised of 411 Hubble Space Telescope images that span more than 100 million stars and 40,000 light years (as HP notes, “Well, a section of it does anyway…”). According to NASA, it would take more than 600 HD television screens to display the whole image.

How is that for a little higher perspective?

Makes you wonder what’s really going on out there…”
