NOW DO SOME OF YOU REALIZE !?!?! Do you now realize how preposterous it is
to say there’s no Alien lifeforms out there far more advanced than ours?

Jimmy James says:

And we’re still arguing over money…………

Chickstick says:

Each of these little dots is a star. Many of those probably have planets,
if not multiple ones.
Billions and Trillions of opportunities for life, simple or complex,
unaware of their surroundings or stargazing just like us.

Unbelieveable. 

North Code says:

How can humans still believe in a ”god” when looking at something like
this?

Religion contributes NOTHING when it comes to humans progression whereas
science does. Religion takes us backwards while science takes us forward
and into the future.

Juliet Weybret says:

This made me cry. Our universe is beautiful.

Peter Hollens says:

This is absolutely incredible… Well worth the watch. Get ready to have
your mind blown.

NASA is full of shit! They said this video shows there are over 1 trillion
stars in Andromeda –I only counted 989,927,653,452! 

Brian Koberlein says:

*My God It’s Full of Stars*

One of the more difficult ideas to grasp in astronomy is the sheer scale of
the cosmos. Even as a professional in the field it’s much easier to focus
on numbers and data than really step back and appreciate scale. Every now
and then there is an image that forces you contemplate scale, such as the
Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Now NASA and ESA have released a new image of the
Andromeda galaxy. It is the most detailed image of Andromeda ever made,and
you can check it out in this video.

The total image has about 1.5 billion pixels, and shows over 100 million
stars across 40,000 light years. In the image you can see the brilliant
swirls of Andromeda’s spiral arms, but when you zoom in the dusty swirls
resolve into individual stars. A vast sea of stars.

Andromeda is relatively close by cosmic standards. It’s only 2.5 million
light years away, which is why we can resolve the galaxy in such detail.
But this shows only the brighter stars of Andromeda. It’s estimated that
Andromeda contains about a trillion stars, most of which are too small and
dim to resolve in this image. We’re still only seeing a fraction of the
stars in this galaxy.

As you look on this image, keep in mind that this is only part of a nearby
galaxy. Our own galaxy would look similar, as would many others. It’s
estimated that there are 100 billion galaxies in the visible universe.
That’s more than 10 galaxies for every man, woman and child on Earth.
Multiply this image by ten, and for all of it there is only one single
human being. The same is true for every person on the planet.

Images such as these often give a feeling of smallness. Within the vast
cosmos we are merely dust upon dust. But to me it demonstrates just how
rare and wondrous each of us are. We can look on an image such as this, see
the spirals of stars, and we can understand the cosmos.

Да-да, расскажите мне про бога после этого.

Lucrecia Luna says:

A principios de este mes de Enero la NASA y la ESA dieron a conocer la
imagen de mayor resolución obtenida nunca de la galaxia vecina de
Andrómeda. Con 1.500 millones de pixeles, esta imagen ha sido realizada con
el Telescopio Espacial Hubble.
Cada diminuto punto en que se resuelve la imagen es una entre los cientos
de miles de millones de estrellas que contiene Andrómeda.
¡Asombroso!¿no? Pues esta galaxia vecina no es más que una entre los miles
de millones de galaxias que pueblan el Universo.
Ayuda a reflexionar y a situarnos en nuestro lugar, ¿no os parece?

I am so small…..

Michaela Belle says:

“If there is other intelligent life out there in the universe, why haven’t
they tried to contact us?” Are you guys fucking serious? After reading
these youtube comments I wouldn’t want to contact any of you either. Don’t
be arrogant. The universe literally does not revolve around earth. Maybe
they haven’t contacted us because we’re not worth their time. I don’t know.
Nobody knows. Pipe down. 

Blake Grigsby says:

Oh wow… We are not alone.

KnightOfNostalgia says:

You have all of this around you, and we’re here in this tiny world, that’s
not even a dot in the universe.. worrying about bills, religion, being
politically correct and having the coolest, latest gadgets and clothes.
We’re really just a bunch of dumb monkeys living in a world we don’t
deserve.

*NASA Has Released The Largest Picture Ever Taken*

Have you seen the largest picture ever taken? For the record, it’s a
mammoth 1.5 billion pixel image (69,536 x 22,230) and requires about 4.3 GB
disk space. Oh, and it’ll take your breath away.

On January 5, NASA released an image of the Andromeda galaxy, our closest
galactic neighbour, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The
full image is made up of 411 Hubble images, takes you through a 100 million
stars and travels over more than 40,000 light years. Well, a section of it
anyway.

John King says:

Now imagine that those stars are dollar bills. Multiply by 18 and you have
the national debt. Isn’t science fun?

Tom Eigelsbach says:

*NASA released the largest pic ever taken of the Andromeda Galaxy on
January 5, with a whopping 1.5 billion pixels, You’d need 600 HD television
screens to see the whole image at once. Know any big sports bars?*

This YouTube fly-through video shows the detail of the picture captured by
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. So far, the video has over 5 million page
views. (I missed posting this when it first came out.) The full image takes
you through 100 million stars (those little white dots) and travels more
than 40k light-years.

Super-high resolution image of Andromeda from Hubble (NASA/ESA):
http://www.spacetelescope.org/images/heic1502a/zoomable/ ” This image,
captured with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, is the largest and
sharpest image ever taken of the Andromeda galaxy — otherwise known as M31.

This is a cropped version of the full image and has 1.5 billion pixels. You
would need more than 600 HD television screens to display the whole image.

It is the biggest Hubble image ever released and shows over 100 million
stars and thousands of star clusters embedded in a section of the galaxy’s
pancake-shaped disc stretching across over 40 000 light-years.

This image is too large to be easily displayed at full resolution and is
best appreciated using the zoom tool. ”

wolfgang schmittenhammer says:

How anyone can view this and think we are the only ones in this universe
and or the only life is beyond mind boggling. As a science geek, viewing
this has just dazzled me.

captkirk05 says:

All these comments with people saying they know for sure there is or
isn’t other life, or they know for sure God is real or myth. Damn, when did
everyone become omniscient and not share that power with me? All people
have to base their logic and expectations on is from how things work on
Earth. Space is infinite and we have NO FUCKING CLUE what lies out there.
So stop stating your opinions as facts morons. It’s stupid to apply our
infant state of logic to the universe.
My OPINION is that there could just as easily be no life as there could be
life out there, and that a supreme power designed this place, whether or
not you want to call it “God” means nothing to me. The influence of a
“sentient power” creating existence means it can be much more probable that
Earth could be the rare gem in a vast tapestry of the universe, that was
not created to bear life as Earth was. It could also mean for the
possibility of countless forms of life. (END OPINION, you are entitled to
your own)

Jim Goldstein says:

Much talk has been had about the 4.3 Gigapixel image NASA released of a
portion of the Andromeda galaxy as seen from the Hubble telescope. Here is
a video to give you a tour of the vastness of space and this one section of
Andromeda… all in relation to our night sky. Well worth a watch… 

Lynne Watanabe says:

Wow. NASA Releases the largest picture ever taken. Via scoopwhoop.com:

“Have you seen the largest picture ever taken? For the record, it’s a

Hay quien podría opinar que merecería la pena comprar un TV 4K solo para
ver esto.

Se trata de un montaje titulado Gigapixels of Andromeda [4K] que utiliza
las imágenes de la NASA recientemente dadas a conocer de la galaxia M-31, a
unos impresionantes 69.000 × 22.000 píxeles. Eso es un total de unos 1.500
millones de píxeles que requieren para una sola y gigantesca imagen 4,3
gigabytes de espacio en disco.

El montaje original se compone de cerca de 7.400 fotografías montadas en un
gigantesco mosaico, que en el vídeo se va ampliando y desplazando junto con
una sobrecogedora música que lleva al espectador a otros mundos.

Según la NASA el conjunto de la imagen contiene unos 100 millones de
estrellas en total.

NASA’s gigapixel M31, I’ve got to say I was speechless when I watched this

Golden Aura says:

On January 5th 2015 NASA let out an image of the andromeda galaxy which is
the closest galaxy to us. They captured the image using the Hubble
telescope once again but this time it’s taken to a whole new level. They
took 411 images and put them together to create the largest image ever
taken. It’s a whopping 1.5 billion pixels and requires about 4.3 GB of disk
space. The image takes you through over 100 million stars and travels more
than 40,000 light years. It’s likely to make you feel like you are only a
very very small part of a universe that we begin to understand the true
size of as each day passes. We are less than specks in the grand scheme of
things

Is it weird I cried while watching this…? It’s just so fucking
beautiful…

Avery Baker says:

THIS BLEW MY MIND.

A youth group leader at my church showed us this photograph of our galactic
neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy. It’s the largest picture EVER TAKEN. It
took NASA years to achieve something this big. They took pictures of 411
locations and can’t show the entire thing because that’s how big it is. It
takes up about 4.36 gigabytes of space on a computer. In the Bible, it
says that the stars in the universe outnumber the grains of sand on a
beach. Thinking about those trillions of grains of sand on just a small
stretch of beach, that’s hard for humans to even picture. It’s
overwhelming, this beautiful universe God has created.

+1 if this overwhelms you too.

Вы готовы увидеть самые большие фото в мире? Американское космическое
агентство NASA сделало 411 уникальных снимков галактики Андромеды с помощью
космического телескопа Хаббл. Ничего подобного ранее не было.
Фотографии имеют размеры 69 536 на 22 230 пикселей, а в общей сложности это
получается 1,5 млрд пикселей. Для сравнения – 8-мегапиксельной камерой
обычного смартфона можно сделать фото размером 3264 раз 2448 пикселей,
