This cool and I had to share, the first link takes you to space.com but the second link takes you too the image, very cool IMO.

yea i did, incredible.

that's where my question came fro... about the Hubble deep field images. i saw something similar to this before, but not on ATS.

wish i could find it.

The more i look at galaxies, the more i see the correlation between Grand unification theory Nassim Haramein has been throwing around.

images like these, help us understand what our reality really is... and where we stand in existence.

Thats incredible!! Maybe it should be turned in to a virtual pic, how amazing it would be if it filled a 360 view.

Wow! This will also be my new wallpaper. Great find and thanks for posting!


Does anyone know (or have an estimation) of what our galaxy looks like from, say, Andromeda. Is it a spiral or does it look like a strip like this image? Either way ... it is beautiful.

Thanks again! S & F for you!

I think Nasa/someone is working on that...can't wait. Try and find the link and post it.


This interactive Galaxy Map should hold you over until then...and make sure to utilize the options available.

Hmm... I get this when I try to follow the link to a better version of the pic:

Would really enjoy seeing a better and bigger version of it.

But thanks OP, very cool pic.



I tried this one from the bottom of the Space article:
141.209.165.197...

but that didn't work either for me. Really cool photo though
