Collective Evolution has the article NASA Has Released The Largest Picture Ever Taken. It Will Rock Your Universe.
On January 5th 2015, NASA let out an image of the Andromeda galaxy, which is the closest galaxy to us. They captured the image using the NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope once again, but this time it’s taken to a whole new level. They took 411 images and put them together to create the largest image ever taken. It’s a whopping 1.5 billion pixels and requires about 4.3 GB of disk space!
Here is a video view of that image that tries to visually convey the magnitude of what NASA has done.
Whenever I contemplate some of the wonders that science produces it makes me think of the people who have little knowledge or interest in modern day science.
And to think some people take their view of the world from ancient texts, written thousands of years ago. Compared with what we know today, why would I think that people thousands of years ago had a better understanding than we do today?
I am glad that I saw this article on Matson Haug’s Facebook page.
