Remember when NASA released what was coined ‘the most significant image every captured?‘ Well they seem to have outdone themselves with this one.

For a second, take a moment and think of how big our universe is. Where are we? Where do things begin? And where does it stop? We don’t have to answer this literally, but simply picture it in your mind. What you are about to see below will likely rock whatever you just imagined in your mind.

The BIG Image

On January 5th 2015, NASA let out an image of the Andromeda galaxy, which is the closest galaxy to us. They captured the image using the NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope once again, but this time it’s taken to a whole new level. They took 411 images and put them together to create the largest image ever taken. It’s a whopping 1.5 billion pixels and requires about 4.3 GB of disk space!

The image takes you through over 100 million stars and travels more than 40,000 light years. It’s likely to make you feel like you are only a very, very small part of a universe that we begin to understand the true size of as each day passes.

There’s not much else to say other than sit back, watch and enjoy having your mind blown.

    This reminds me of the comment that the closer you look at something that is God made, the more beautiful it becomes. The closer you look at something man made, the less beauty it has.
    This video was awe-inspiring. Thank you for sharing.
