Hubble’s High-Definition Panoramic View of the Andromeda Galaxy

This sweeping bird’s-eye view of a portion of the Andromeda galaxy (M31) is the sharpest image and largest image ever taken of our galactic next-door neighbor. Image credit: NASA, ESA, J. Dalcanton, B.F. Williams, and L.C. Johnson (University of Washington), the PHAT team, and R. Gendler.

The largest image : NASA Hubble Space Telescope has released the sweeping bird’s-eye view of a portion of the Andromeda galaxy (M31). This image is the sharpest large composite image ever taken of any galaxy. This galaxy is over 2 million light-years away. The Hubble Space Telescope is powerful enough to resolve individual stars in a 61,000-light-year-long stretch of the galaxy’s pancake-shaped disk. It’s like photographing a beach and resolving individual grains of sand. And there are lots of stars in this sweeping view — over 100 million, with some of them in thousands of star clusters seen embedded in the disk. These are the kinds of things we need to teach the young if we want to interest them with the best telescopes for kids or a trip to the planetarium.

This image is a mammoth 1.5 billion pixel image (69, 536 x 22, 230) and requires about 4.3 GB disk space.

The full image is made up of 411 Hubble images. Check out this video till the end. It’s a breathtaking video :

NASA is exploring our solar system and beyond to understand the universe and our place in it. We seek to unravel the secrets of our universe, its origins and evolution, and search for life among the stars. Today’s announcement shares the discovery of our ever-changing cosmos, and brings us closer to learning whether we are alone in the universe.
