This video was produced about a month ago to complement the release of Hubble’s largest-ever photo capture of the Andromeda galaxy, and it is absolutely awe-inspiring. Avail here in ultra-HQ YouTube resolution, just take a couple of minutes and bask in the sheer magnitude of all the shining beacons that exist across the unfathomable distances of the galactic plane.
Slow pans across this 1.5 billion-pixel image (which requires of 4.3 gigabytes of disk storage space), coupled with an ethereal backing track, put me into a deep ease about the world. This is zen. This is humbling. This is serene. This is life.
