The largest picture ever taken

The largest picture ever taken

So, as it turns out, NASA has released an incredible picture of the Andromeda galaxy on January 5.

It is by far the largest picture ever taken (by anyone, anywhere): it contains 1.5 billion pixels (69,536 x 22,230), takes up to 4.3 GB in disk space and is made up of 411 Hubble images which, combined, let you explore over 100 million stars. I don’t think even Mr. Kelvin could think of something cooler than this!

So, without further due, here’s a fly-through video of the picture made by Youtube user daveachuk. Make sure you set it to 4K definition and watch it in full screen!
