NASA Releases Giant Photo of Galaxy Neighbor

NASA just released an enormous photo of Andromeda, our neighbor galaxy. The image, taken by The Hubble Space Telescope, captures over 100 million stars across a 61,000-light-year-long stretch. The space agency reports that this is the sharpest large composite image ever taken of the galaxy, with rendering “like photographing a beach and resolving individual grains of sand.”
