Amazing 1.5 Billion Pixel Image of Andromeda Galaxy Released by NASA [video]

I couldn’t resist sharing this video. It’s quite powerful in the perspective if offers while being truly beautiful at the same time.

NASA recently released a 1.5 billion pixel image of the Andromeda galaxy, our nearest galactic neighbor, which contains over 100 million stars and spans more than 40,000 light years – and that’s just a section of the galaxy.

This image, created from a mosaic of 411 Hubble pictures, was then used by YouTuber daveachuk to create this incredible fly-through video. Combined with gorgeous music from the band Koda, it’s an awe-inspiring – and humbling – experience.
