READY TO FEEL SMALL?

NASA has just released it biggest
hi-resolution photo 
of the Andromeda Galaxy.

It took the Hubble Telescope
3 years to photograph this image,
section by section.
The 4.3-gigabyte photo
is composed of 1.5 billion pixels.
The finished image is
60,000 x 22,000 pixels
and requires 600 HD TV displays
to view it all.

When you view this YouTube video
(just released)
keep in mind each pixel is a star
with its own unique universe.
Ready to feel really, really insignificant?

  4. Hay cosas que se escapan a los límites terrenales que nos imponemos para acotar la realidad del día a día, esa que en ocasiones nos supera y nos parexe demasiado, no nos damos cuenta del real alcance, complejidad y belleza que ahí... En alguna parte nos espera....

    Un abrazo de luz y gratitud por compartir y por tus huellas en mi isla
