Gigapixels of Andromeda [4K]

andromeda-hubble-telescope_110115

This high resolution video explores the largest Hubble Space Telescope image ever assembled, which displays  a portion of the Andromeda galaxy. Though the galaxy is over 2 million light-years away, the Hubble telescope is powerful enough to resolve individual stars in a 61,000-light-year-long section of the galaxy’s pancake-shaped disk. Over 100 million stars can be seen in this image and you can find all of the high-res images and videos here.
