Largest, Sharpest Photo Ever Taken of the Andromeda Galaxy

Science By

The Hubble Telescope took the largest image of the Andromeda galaxy ever (below), which shows over 100 million stars. It’s also the highest-resolution image of the galaxy ever taken. If it were at its full size, you’d need more than 600 HD television screens to display it on. Check out a zoomable version of the image here.
