At the beginning of 2015, NASA used the Hubble Space Telescope to take the largest picture in the history of mankind. The photo alone required 4.3 giga-bytes of ram simply to be stored. What does that mean for a lot of us who aren’t tech-geeks? There probably isn’t that much space on the entire hard drive of the computer you are using right now, and that much space was needed to store only one photo!
As you watch the video, sit back, relax, and allow your eyes to go just a little out of focus. See how many faces you see in the cosmos of Andromeda, the closest galaxy to our own, the Milky Way.
