RESPECT! Largest Photo ever Taken by NASA Will BLOW YOUR MIND!

The video below, posted on Youtube, shows a picture of Andromeda. The Andromeda Galaxy is probably the most massive galaxy in the Local Group despite earlier findings that suggested that the Milky Way contains more dark matter and could be the most massive in the grouping. The 2006 observations by the Spitzer Space Telescope revealed that Andromeda contains one trillion stars: at least twice the number of stars in the Milky Way galaxy, which is estimated to be 200–400 billion.

How small are we really? Just have a peek at the largest NASA photo ever taken ~ a super-high resolution image of Andromeda from Hubble ~ and feel how incredibly vast the universe is. It is simply breathtaking.
