NASA has released the highest quality photo of space ever taken. View the full image here.

This amazing image was taken by the Hubble telescope of the Andromeda Galaxy, and the full size image is about 60,000 by 22,000 pixels, a total of 1.5 billion pixels. That’s about 1,000 times the resolution of regular high-definition. No biggie. The file actually takes up about 4.5GB of space.

All in all there are roughly 10 Million stars in the photo, which is demonstrated when you zoom in.

The best way to look at this image is with this zooming tool, which you can use to zoom in real close and look at individual stars. Actual legit, individual stars. Hours of time wasting potential here, folks.

Or alternatively, check out out this video that pans across the image and really puts it into scale:
