Billions and Billions of… Pixels? …I Mean “Stars.”

NASA has released a beautiful image of the Andromeda Galaxy taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.  Scientists can now identify individual stars within certain parts of the spiral for the first time.  This high definition image has 1.5 million pixels, the highest resolution picture of Andromeda ever taken, consisting of 1 trillion stars.  That’s an average of 667 stars for every pixel.

“My God…It’s full of stars.”
