NASA releases a mind-blowing 'The Largest Photo' ever taken

Andromeda galaxy as shot by NASA's Hubble telescope

How big can be a photo if one is left to imagine? Well NASA has come up with a photo that is much beyond our imagination and bounds. 

Scroll down for the video

The photo recently revealed is a 1.5 billion pixel image (as large as 69, 536 x 22, 230 - and requires about 4.3 GB disk space) of the Andromeda galaxy, which is our nearest galactic neighbor. This mind blowing photo contains over 100 million stars and spans more than 40,000 light years – and mind you 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.
